To the editor:

I am writing this letter to endorse Craig Simmons for Ghent Town Supervisor. I have worked closely with Craig the last five years on the Chatham High School Robotics Team and know him as a friend, colleague, and mentor. When Robotics encountered mechanical difficulties, he volunteered, got right to work, and helped us get to the competition. And he has been with us ever since, teaching, helping, and inspiring the team to problem solve and learn new things. He genuinely cares about the school and the students which is evident in so many ways. When he sees something that needs to be done - he does it. Because he cares.

Craig is an extremely hard worker and strives to ensure that his work is done well. He is caring and level headed even in tense situations. He is so knowledgeable about the land and understands the struggles that many face both socially and economically. He has held leadership positions and carried them out both in a professional and effective manner. He understands the politics of local governments and how to navigate effectively within them. And he is honest. All of these traits: hard working, caring, intelligent, place-based knowledge, professionalism, leadership skills, volunteerism, political experience, and love of community are all traits that I would want in a Supervisor candidate.

A vote for Craig Simmons is a vote for honesty, hard work, and true leadership.
