“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us” was a philosophy that we were fortunate enough to have instilled within us growing up with Robin Biloski, our mom.
Even today, 35 years after Brian was born, there is never a moment when we see our mom sitting down and taking it easy. She has always embraced every new day and hit the ground running, trying to make our community a better place and our dreams come true.
When Mom first told us, more than a decade ago, that she intended to run for public office, we thought she lost her mind. As an avid volunteer with numerous organizations ranging from the League of Women Voters to S.A.R.G. and the Humane Society, to organizer of our school’s talent show, dance recitals, and A.C.A.C. events, Mom instilled in us her passion and commitment to community service. She is always willing to get involved in causes she believes in, but also gets behind ours as well. She has never failed to roll up her sleeves and get to work making friends wherever she went. We were fortunate and blessed to have her as a stay-at-home mom, and when she started branching out and demonstrating her professional success outside of the “Biloski household,” she exceeded every expectation that we had set for her. Her confidence and desire to help everyone provided us with a role model and the honorable distinction of knowing the only woman on Anderson County Commission for the past two terms.
Watching the County Commission meetings, we are able to see our mom being the strong, optimistic, compassionate, and inspirational woman that we knew growing up. We also see a citizen who loves her community dearly and believes that we live in the greatest county in Tennessee. She demonstrates a firm knowledge of diverse subjects and issues facing Anderson County and combines that with a common sense approach to fiscal responsibility. Being a stay-at-home mom of a family of five with five pets, she understands the need to budget for the future. She approaches the county’s budget with the same perspective she did running her home and ensures that every dollar spent is a wise and necessary investment into our future. Like our family, she believes Anderson County should function within its means. She also practices what she always preached to us—to always do our very best, hold our heads high, and honor our convictions and beliefs.
Our country and county are at a pivotal point and the success of our future depends on careful long-range planning, common sense and experienced leadership, collaborative interactions, dedication to continually striving to make our county a better place, and a knowledge of issues important to families. Robin Biloski has demonstrated that she has all of the skills necessary to be an effective voice for District 8, and we hope she can continue to prove us right. Mom will do her very best and be a strong voice for all her constituents.
We humbly ask for your support for our mom during early voting and on August 7. To learn more, please review her website at www.biloskiforcommission.com or just ask her greatest supporters and fans, her family!
