Letter: Keep politics civil, especially at the local level

One expects smear campaigns and negative ads for national elections, but not at the local level or even the state level.

I'm sorry to see it in my local state Senate race. Negative campaigns are one reason so many people are disgusted with politics and unwilling to run for office themselves.

I urge everyone to discourage negative campaigning by voting for good qualified people who do not engage in nasty attacks on their opponents.
