To the editor:
I am proud to be a supporter of Milo Smith. While many in the community know him as a state representative, over the past 29 years I have had the pleasure of getting to know him on a personal level and found him to be a man of integrity.
I have witnessed firsthand his love for his family as the father of my grandchildren, who are now grown adults each thriving in their chosen careers. A great deal of their success can be attributed to his example of hard work and his servanthood to others in his community.
As an entrepreneur, Smith started his own business nearly 24 years ago. As with any new business, challenges have arisen throughout the years, but he has never given up in the face of adversity, choosing always to work harder in order to succeed. His work ethic and dedication have been inspirational.
In addition to his hard work with his business, he has always made time to serve those in our community. Many residents of Columbus have been recipients of his selflessness and servant leadership.
Even though Smith has received endorsements from businesses and trade organizations, I feel compelled to endorse him personally. With his qualities of honesty and integrity and commitment to his faith, we can be assured that he will continue to serve his district and the state of Indiana well.
