I wanted to offer my preference for David Byrne who is running for the State Legislature. I had the opportunity to meet him when he volunteered for some service learning projects that I used to conduct internationally. He did this before going to West Point. I found him to be an extremely conscientious young man with a great deal of personal integrity and character. He also exhibited tremendous compassion.
In the years since, I have found him to be someone who is always thinking about how improve the wider community and an individual who is concerned about making a difference. I don’t often meet people these days who have these characteristics.
I believe we would be extremely lucky to have David Byrne representing our region in the State Legislature. I have no doubt whatsoever that he will be transparent and in touch with our concerns and needs locally and that he will conduct himself with integrity and honesty. I only wish we had more candidates like him – especially on the national level. David Byrne certainly has my vote.
