Letter: Ron Madrid Is a Humble Public Servant and the Right Choice for Mayor

on October 19, 2017 4:30 AM

In defense of humble public service.

Ron Madrid is the right man, in the right place, at the right moment in time for our community.

We need a leader with sound judgment and humility, a person whose actions are determined by careful evaluation of the situation and consideration of all the factors at play. We need pragmatism and patience. We need someone who solves problems. We need Ron Madrid.

Our mayor should have experience governing and have demonstrated their commitment to OUR community. Ron has been a humble public servant in State College for much of my life.

Ron is, in my estimation, the model of a humble public servant, a man of character and integrity who is courageous enough to stand up and make his home a better place. Ron is involved not for his own self-interest or enrichment, but because it is the right thing to do.

He tackles issues such as local tax reform and community development planning, not flashy by any scale, but very important for the daily operation and future prosperity of our community. This is the real work of governance.

We need experienced, capable, and humble people to lead us. People that calmly, effectively, and impartially work with all parties to bring about constructive solutions to near and long term challenges.

Ron Madrid has proven that he is this leader, and the only candidate that has the ability and experience to truly be a mayor for everyone.
