Allison actively involved in community

Dear Editor,
We are writing this letter in support of current mayor, Mike Allison. We have known Mike for 43 years. Long before Mike was elected mayor of Great Bend, he was already working hard to make Great Bend a better place for families to live. When we first met Mike and his late wife Sally, they were new to the community. Mike had just started his dental practice and they were busy just trying to keep up with three active sons. However, when called upon, Mike still found time to volunteer his time and service to numerous groups when asked. He was a Cub Master for Boy Scouts, involved with Babe Ruth Baseball, Kids Wrestling, and Panther Boosters to name a few. The point is, Mike made sure that what he chose to do, in what little spare time he had, was beneficial to our community. Even today, Mike has few hobbies. He chooses to give his time to you, the citizens of Great Bend. Mike and Sally were founding donors for the Cancer Center and the Golden Belt Foundation, again showing their foresight and willingness to give back to their hometown. Mike has spent time in Topeka getting to know our State Representatives and Senators and is recognized and respected by them. He was appointed to the board of Cedar Crest working to restore our historic governors mansion in Topeka. Because of all that Mike has done to make our community a better place to live, we feel you couldn’t elect a better person to represent you and Great Bend as our mayor                                                            Bob and Carol Dema
