Your front page story about Ed Quick’s military service was enlightening since there has been much gossip and no facts.
I did not know Quick when he was a teenager, but I have been acquainted with his public work as a senator from Missouri and earlier in local Clay County politics. I know him as a caring, accessible person, someone who will stop and say hello to a common person on the street and hear his story.
He was the only local representative who would respond and do what he could to help my family when we had a problem. He will certainly have my vote.
And I am glad my mistakes as a teenager have not made the front page.
