Jim would be the perfect person for this position for many reasons. Jim is the same honorable person today that he was 30 years ago. When he hears someone needs help in any aspect of life, physically, emotionally or spiritually, he is there to help. He offers assistance without hesitation and is glad to do it. No job is too small for him. He is dedicated and has a strong work ethic. He always follows through on his obligations in a timely manner and will not quit a project until it is completed in perfection.

Second, Jim has integrity. He is very trustworthy and bound by a strong moral code. He stands up for what he feels is right, fair and honest. He is accountable for his actions and makes educated decisions and stands behind them. He would stand alone for the protection of the people against all odds, that’s leadership!

Third, Jim is highly motivated. He is very goal oriented and makes sure he takes the proper steps to achieve that goal. He is driven and works hard to find a way to overcome when presented with obstacles.

Fourth, Jim is a great communicator. He has a natural way of making people feel comfortable and able to open up and talk freely. He listens without judging and offers constructive feedback when necessary

Lee and I highly recommend Jim Engelman for council member in District 2 because we know he possesses the qualities needed to serve our wonderful community.
