I would like to recommend Lynn Lathrop for your consideration for the Nevada City Council on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

I have known Lynn for more than 10 years and watched him accomplish a considerable amount of good for our community and county.

I met Lynn when he was running for mayor of Nevada, and as commander at the time of the American Legion.

I coordinated with him regularly as we pushed to make Nevada a better community for all our citizens. Later, as he became one of the commissioners for the Story County Veterans Affairs Commission. I worked with him as we tried to take the best care we could of our fellow veterans in Story County.

I have found him to be straight forward yet sensitive to his fellow citizens. He seems to have the ability to work with a diverse group of people while also ensuring best results for those he represents.

Lynn has been a member of the American Legion Post No. 48 for more than seven years. He has been a voice for common sense and practicality as we move to do the best for our community.

I encourage you to vote for Lynn for Nevada City Council at-large on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Timothy R. McLaughlin Jr., Nevada.
