To the editor:

I would highly recommend Jim Engelman for City Council in the 2nd District. He is an accomplished businessman who has been endorsed by most of the local unions that work in Independence.

Mr. Engelman has faithfully served the citizens of Independence for many years. He is one of us and understands the struggles facing our households and our community. I have called Mr. Engelman on many occasions and he has always answered or returned my calls. He is a man of faith who not only believes in He who reigns, but believes in our city and our country. A compliment that I would give Mr. Engelman is that he is not a professional politician, but perhaps the highest recommendation I could give him is that he is an honest and moral man. He plays no political games and will vote for what is right, even when that is a difficult decision.

Mr. Engelman will tell you what he’s for, while others will tell you what they are against. A vote for Mr. Engelman is a vote for our community.
