Editor:

It’s been said to never mix business with politics, but I can’t keep quiet any longer on our current Mayor race.

I own a small business on Main Street in Florence, AZ. I love our town, it’s residents, and our Historic Main Street.

I’m on Main Street five days a week. I see first hand what downtown once was, where we’re at now, and what it could potentially be with the right leadership for the town.

I supported our current mayor in the past. I had her sign in my shop eight years ago when she first ran for town council; times change, seasons change. I am now supporting Kyle Larsen for good reasons.

Our current mayor has never stepped foot in my shop which never really bothered me until earlier this year when Kyle Larsen came into my shop to introduce himself. At first I was standoff-ish to him, but he continued to stop by my shop weekly asking questions and asking what he could do to help small businesses if he’s elected; I was sold. Kyle’s sign went up after his second visit. Kyle Larsen has the time and energy to be a full-time Mayor for Florence.

When customers come into my shop, see Kyle's sign, and ask about the mayor race, my response is the same to everyone: When you leave the shop, look down Main Street. If you like what you see, vote for our incumbent, if you don’t like what you see, vote for change!
