Dear Editor:

Joe Biden has recently stated:

"The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us. Leadership that can bring us together. Leadership that can recognize the pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for too long."

I urge all in our community to reach out to the Biden campaign for president of the United States and join in the effort to replace the current occupant of the White House.

Joe has a long career serving the people of our country in an honorable, honest and humble manner. He served in the Senate and had a very distinguished experience there, rising to leadership positions like being chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, successfully working face to face with leaders from around the world. He served as vice president for all eight years of the Obama administration, being a very close and trusted advisor to President Obama.

Now, he is offering his services to us as our President. We need him in this troubled time.

I urge all to consider getting involved in his campaign to help us get our country back on track to deal with the difficult issues we face. Joe will be a president we can be proud of!

John W. Cox Jr.
