Letter: Support For Guillaume

I was impressed with the way Byrnes Guillaume spoke at the Loxahatchee Groves Landowners’ Association’s candidates forum about preserving and protecting the rural lifestyle that the equestrian and agricultural establishments bring to the Town of Loxahatchee Groves.

I also thought about the many issues the town is facing and decided to support Byrnes Guillaume because he has shown that he is an honest person who will stand by his word. He promised me in 2009 that when the time was right, he would get more involved within the town. Here we are today in full campaign mode, with Byrnes fully committed to be the consensus-builder when elected as the next town council member. Byrnes has shown that he is a fast learner. He has been fine-tuning his knowledge about the issues that the town is facing and has been able to catch up on them because he is a very good listener who does hear and process what is being said to him.

I also decided to support Byrnes because I was impressed with the way he makes a statement and then stands behind that statement. He has made a commitment to run a positive campaign and not react negatively toward the opponent and his supporters if they resort to nasty campaigning. This principle alone has been a welcomed campaign strategy that other political campaigners should follow.

I hope you will join me in voting for Byrnes on March 13. Loxahatchee Groves needs an open-minded council member who will study the facts, listen to the people and then vote based on the results of the findings.
