My name is Ted Kohn. I am reaching out to you, my neighbors, in support of Jim Faulkner. I ask that you please consider him for a position on the Charlotte Select Board.
I’m a Charlotte resident and have known Jim and his family for 12 or so years now. The way politics are these days, people seem to reside only to the left and to the right. What opportunity does that offer for us to come together? Little, it seems. Jim is an opportunity.
I see Jim as a well-rounded candidate – a candidate worthy of your consideration no matter your leanings. He’s an exemplary family man and a self-made success. That translates to values and smarts. All of us can appreciate such things and agree that they’d serve our town well.
Jim is incredibly generous with his time and with his resources. He’s willing to get his hands dirty to see that what needs to happen, actually happens. Sometimes it’s out of duty, sometimes it seems to be for the sheer joy of it. In any case, his selfless energy speaks volumes about his character. And that’s the kind of character we should be looking for in a public servant.
I have faith that Jim will approach our challenges head on with the resolve that we need to make Charlotte work for everyone who lives here. He is that friend and neighbor we can come together over. The one who wants the same thing all of us want – the very possible best for this unique place we’re lucky enough to call home.
