WHAT THEY CARE KOSSUTH COUNTY? DO THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES REALLY CARE ABOUT KOSSUTH COUNTY? LET'S LOOK AT THE RECORD. GOVERNOR HUGHES, THE BUSIEST GOVERNOR IN MODERN TIMES, HAS BEEN TO KOSSUTH COUNTY FOR TWO MAJOR SPEECHES AND ONE PUBLIC RECEPTION SINCE JUNE. THAT'S 3 APPEARANCES IN THE LAST 4 MONTHS. HOW ABOUT HIS OPPONENT? HIS OPPONENT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE TROUBLE FINDING KOSSUTH COUNTY ON A MAP. WE CAN'T RECALL THE LAST TIME HE WAS HERE. WE MUST NOT BE VERY IMPORTANT IN HIS BOOK. CONGRESSMAN GREIGG'S RECORD IS ALSO ENVIABLE. IN HIS TWO YEARS IN CONGRESS STAN GREIGG HAS RETURNED TO NORTHWEST IOWA ALMOST 60 TIMES WHILE MAINTAINING AN ALMOST PERFECT ATTENDANCE RECORD IN WASHINGTON. IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS HE HAS BEEN JN KdSSUTH COUNTY 4 TIMES. HE WAS HERE LAST THURSDAY AND HE'LL BE BACK AGAIN NEXT MONDAY. HE CARES ABOUT KOSSUTH COUNTY AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE. HE APPRECIATES OUR SUPPORT WITHOUT TAKING US FOR GRANTED. HOW ABOUT HIS OPPONENT? HIS OPPONENT HAS BEEN CAMPAIGNING ABOUT SIX MONTHS. HE HAS MADE ONLY 3 PUBLIC APPEARANCES IN KOSSUTH COUNTY DURING ALL THAT TIME, DESPITE THE FACT HE IS NOT A BUSY CONGRESSMAN. IF HE IGNORES US LIKE THAT BEFORE AN ELECTION, JUST IMAGINE THE COLD SHOULDER WE'D GET IF HE WINS THE ELECTION. IT WOULD ALMOST BE LIKE NOT HAVING A REPRESENTATIVE AT ALL. VOTE FOR CANDIDATES WHO HAVE A PROVEN INTEREST IN KOSSUTH COUNTY. We say keep the Hughes team together We say keep the county team together. We say keep Iowa moving ahead. HAROLD E.
