Labat has energy and time

To the editor:

Being in business in Marshall for 40 years, I have had the pleasure of knowing Russ Labat for at least 25, he being somewhat younger than me.

Russ was born and raised in Marshall and has been a member of the business community as the circulation manager and then publisher of the Marshall Independent.

It is obvious that his heart carries the interest of his hometown and I feel he will serve the public’s interest better than most potential candidates. He is retired now and has the energy, experience and needed time to devote to the betterment of his lifelong home.
