    Sorry to read that Jack had passed away. We faced off against each other in a Supervisors race and he won fair and square. Although we differed in our views, we became the best of friends. My condolences to his family. He and I also fought in the same war — WWII. He served his country, state, and county admirably. He will be greatly missed. I’ll be seeing you soon Jack.
