Show­ing our Kent County pride

Kent County News - - OPINION -

To the ed­i­tor: Last Fri­day was the Kent Goes Pur­ple high school foot­ball game. I at­tended and mar­veled at how special that evening was for Kent.

Yes, the game was themed to bring aware­ness to the opi­oid epi­demic and our com­mit­ment to find­ing so­lu­tions, but it achieved even more.

We were there in sup­port of our ath­letes and yes we were there in the hun­dreds show­ing our sup­port. We were not there as Democrats, Repub­li­cans or un­af­fil­i­ated. We were there as Kent Coun­tians — as neigh­bors — show­ing the op­pos­ing team our Kent County pride.

I am proud of our team and ev­ery­one who showed up to sup­port them.

Let’s keep this at­mos­phere in mind as we pro­ceed through the po­lit­i­cal sea­son and be­yond. We are fore­most neigh­bors.

Kent County pride reigns.
