The mayoral race between Jim Chase and Barbara Brewer has shown that a campaign can be run without a lot of mud-slinging and smear tactics.Both candidates have refrained from negative ads, and for the most part, letters of endorsementor both candidates have been positive,ncluding the letter to the Roundup from Councilman Dick Reese.
I saw nothing in Mr. Reese's endorsement of Jim Chasehat could be consideredpersonal attacks on the other candidate,r "Dirty Politics."
Most votes are already in, and it won't be long before we all know who the next mayor of Payson will be. And as the old saying goes, "May The Best Man Win."
Dean Shields, Payson
