To the Editor:
In a few short days DeKalb citizens will be selecting one of several candidates who are running for Mayor. Having known John Rey for most of the 42 years I have lived and worked in DeKalb, I am proud to lend my support to his candidacy.
I have served on several committees, commissions and boards with John and have come to know him as a person who is highly committed to community service. John possesses a leadership style that works to bring people together for a common purpose that serves the best interests for all involved.
There has been much growth and many changes in demographics in DeKalb over the past 40 years, and in every instance where inclusiveness was an issue in any aspect of community life, John always has stood firmly for inclusion of all concerned citizens. His “work together for the greater good” attitude in solving problems has led to many successful outcomes in his employment with private business as well as in his community work.
As mayor, I believe John will be hard working, approachable and will lead the city in becoming an even greater DeKalb.
