To the Editor:
As a young voter frustrated by the embarrassing dialogue of our national election, I am so happy we have a candidate for Oak Ridge City Council that commands the wisdom and leadership qualities we seek and in which we can place much confidence. I appeal to you to take a close look at Jim Dodson, candidate for Oak Ridge City Council.
Jim Dodson has a history of stepping up and taking initiative and leadership in programs that are good for Oak Ridge, Tennessee, its citizens, and businesses.
I am personally aware that for many years he initiated and organized displays and competitions of art work by Oak Ridge students and others across Tennessee and has raised millions of dollars for scholarships. His foresight and leadership go beyond his concentration on the arts and continue to be recognized. This website includes a brief synopsis: http://www.tennesseeartsacademy.org/about-us/staff.aspx.
Like me, you will find that Jim Dodson is always approachable, interested, and responsive. He has the wisdom, experience, professionalism, demeanor, and thoughtful creativity to consider all issues that will come before City Council.
Thank you, Mr. Dodson, for stepping out as a candidate for Oak Ridge City Council and for being willing to continue working for Oak Ridge and Tennessee. I am happy to share a candidate with other concerned young adults. I am happy to vote for Jim Dodson.
