To The Editor:
I am writing in support of John Rey’s candidacy for Mayor of DeKalb. In my role on the board of Conexión Comunidad, I saw John in action in his various community involvements.
I have to admit it crossed my mind on occasion, why does someone like John get involved in the community -- he’s not running for office, he’s not getting paid. The answer: He is someone who cares about the future of DeKalb and has long committed himself to play a positive role in that future. A look at his history of involvement in the community is an impressive testament to this fact.
Well, now he is running for mayor, and I am delighted to be able to vote for him on Tuesday. I believe he will bring independence, experience, and trusted leadership to the challenges facing all of us.
