To the editor:
I have known Jim Schultz for more than 24 years and in all that time he has impressed me with his honesty and humility. He is well spoken and quiet, but at the same time he demonstrates a strong leadership quality. He has served on the Independence City Council for many years and most recently as mayor pro tem.
Jim’s love of the city of Independence has been well documented by the beneficial things to the city he has promoted and helped to implement, some of which are the Events Center, the Palmer Senior Center, park improvements, the Little Blue Expressway and Adventure Oasis.
We attend the same church, and Jim is in attendance at nearly every service. He has taught a church school class for many years and is always supportive of the youth programs. He has raised his children here and they have grown into good and productive citizens. He is an active member of a local service club. He is also an honest and successful business man.
I believe there is not a better person for the job of Independence mayor than Jim Schultz. He loves this city and has the background and knowledge of how the city government works to make it the best it can be. Please exercise your right to vote and elect Jim Schultz as our next mayor.
