I am writing about Tuesday's story, "Davis: 'I have had my troubles' (Page 3A). I have known Jason Davis for the last couple of years through his work with the African American Liaison Advisory Committee to the Janesville Police Department and through an organization he created called Rock County Cares. This group was created to "give" to students and community members in need school supplies, clothing and the like. The Milton School District has moved forward with creating space for this group to do their work. The organization is working to make an impact in other communities.

I know Jason to be a very respectful, honorable, caring and upfront person. He has shown interest in our community and now is interested in giving back even more by running for city council. I'm pleased to see him want to make a difference in our community.

Tuesday's article was a disappointment. When do we leave the past in the past? I'm not judging his past and hope this article doesn't hurt his future in this election. Consider what he is doing now for Rock County through Rock County Cares and the work he has done with the African American Liaison Advisory Committee.
