Letter: James for Ware
This letter is written to endorse Andy James, who is running as an independent for supervisor in the Ware District.
Andy is my brother, and a wonderful brother he is, indeed! Throughout my life, he has been my hero! I have always looked up to Andy because of his kindness, his work ethic, his honesty, his faith, his dedication to his family and friends and his love for Gloucester County. And yes, he is, indeed a loyal man with a lot of loyal friends.
Andy is a man who cares about all of the citizens of Gloucester County. If my home caught on fire, I would want a man to respond who had been loyal to the Gloucester Fire Department and who had been well trained to be there on the scene. If I or any of my family members or friends were in an auto accident, I would want someone to respond who had been loyal to the Gloucester Rescue Squad and who had been well trained in a manner that could help save me/my family/my friends. If I had a child interested in Gloucester Youth Baseball, I would be happy that someone loyal had helped make this ongoing program successful throughout its early years.
If I needed someone with a strong faith to talk with when problems in my life had gone awry, I would want someone loyal to their church and its ongoing programs and activities to be there to help me through tough times. If I needed someone to discuss issues within Gloucester public schools, it would be great to find someone loyal to Gloucester public schools because they had attended Botetourt Elementary and graduated from Gloucester High School and someone who is regularly updated because his daughter is a public school teacher in the county and who is knowledgeable about ongoing public school issues.
Because Andy has lived in Gloucester his entire life, he is now and has always been very loyal to the citizens of Gloucester County and the Ware District and, as his "baby sister," I ask that you consider being loyal to him with your vote of confidence on Nov. 8, and allow him to work with the citizens of Gloucester County to make it an even better place in which to live and work. I believe he does, indeed, deserve your loyalty and your vote. Thank you!
