I am fortunate enough to call him a friend and I am so happy to have met a man with such an impressive background and I was so delighted to learn of his candidacy for a position that is so close to my heart.
Believe me. There is no better man for this job. Just look at his background and, to top it off, he’s the most trustworthy and kindest person you’ve ever known. He is a man of the people who will know how to serve the inhabitants of his neighborhood with kindness while meeting their individual needs.
