Letter to the Editor

Democratic candidate could win

Thursday, November 29, 2012

It is a great disappointment that Cape Girardeau County Democratic lawyers are afraid to take an appointment because they would lose in two years. (Greaser bows out; two remain, Southeast Missourian, Nov. 18, by Scott Moyers.)

I defeated an entrenched Cape Girardeau County Republican prosecuting attorney in 1962, and I defeated Republican candidates for my second and third terms. The same thing could be done now.

Respectfully yours,

BILL D. BURLISON, Wardell, Mo.
