Finally we arrive at John’s temperament, perhaps as important as all of the above successes. John is the perfect leader for our town. He welcomes and encourages citizen involvement and is receptive to differing opinions, recognizing that we have a diverse population in the town. In that regard the town’s website has become more informative and transparent, again inviting citizen participation and differing opinions. Five new committees composed of citizen volunteers have been formed, two of which are the Ethics and the Comprehensive Land Use Committees, both dealing with important issues for our town. John doesn’t get his “hackles” up when people disagree with him but instead listens and learns from differing and sometimes opposing views. He is responsive to community concerns and examples of this are the extended public comment period for the Wemple Corners development and near closure and subsequent survival of the Colonial Acres Golf Course.
In short, we believe John to be an excellent, trustworthy and responsive steward for our town. He richly deserves a second term as supervisor and we hope that come Election Day, like us, you will support John with your vote.
