Thank you to Heritage Bay resident David Finch for this letter to the editor in Monday’s Naples Daily News!
I am voting for Russell Tuff as the Republican
candidate for District 3 Collier County commissioner.
Although I assume his opponents are worthy of
consideration, I don’t know any of them, but I do
know and have known Tuff for a number of years. I
have been impressed with his integrity (how often
have you heard that word mentioned during the recent
campaign season?), his decision-making based
on real data and facts, his dedication to Collier County
and his more than 25 years of leadership experience
in a wide variety of Collier County community
A small sample includes: president, Golden Gate
Area Civic Association; Collier County Planning commissioner;
director, Naples Area Chamber of Commerce;
president, Golden Gate Chamber of Commerce;
charter member of Collier County Tourism
Alliance, and coach of several area sports teams.
The fact that he convinced his grown children to
return to and become residents of Collier County
speaks well of his desire to see the county grow and
In short, I have never known a candidate for any
office who is more prepared and qualified to assume
the duties of a county commissioner than Tuff. I
strongly urge you to consider your vote wisely and
vote for the most qualified candidate, Russell Tuff.
David Finch, Naples
