Stephen Eccles: Crass has shown his character

May 29, 2014 

Character counts. I am usually not politically inclined, being somewhat cynical about politics and politicians in general.

This time, though, I strongly endorse Steve Crass as our representative for District 16.

I have known Steve and his family for over 20 years, first as his water polo coach at Merced College, and later as a peer and a friend.

Steve is honest, family-oriented and one of the hardest workers I know. As an athlete he did not possess an amazing physical talent, but ended up garnering All-American status because of his exceptional dedication, determination and leadership.

That leadership and commitment have been further evidenced in his military and legal careers.

Character counts, and I feel much more confident in representation of this valley and its values with Steve in office.

If you want a man with integrity, tenacity and honor, vote for Steve Crass.
