Not a racist

SoVaNow.com / March 27, 2014
Dear Editor:

When I read that someone or some group was calling state Sen. Frank Ruff a racist, it made me sick. Sen. Ruff is one of the most non-racist men I have met.

If they just realized that this kind of accusation makes things worse. If you know Frank at all you would know how he has worked for all the people in his 15th Senate District.

These people know they cannot beat Sen. Ruff at the polls, so they try to discredit him with a bunch of non-truths.my opinion is that this will only make Frank stronger and makes them look stupid.

Please make yourself heard. It is time we spoke up loud and often!

Thank you

Dan Newkirk, South Boston
