To the Editor:
I'm writing insupport of Judge Justin Hansen in the upcoming election. I am blessed to serve with Justin as a fellow board member with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
I am impressed by his commitment to the mission, to the community and to fellow board members.
He's prepared, engaged and reasonable. Our organization, our mentors, and our kids benefit from the time he has given to the organization. I look forward to serving with him for years to come.
Community Involvement is often bantered about during campaign season, but as someone that has been involved with our community for many years, I also want to point out how much I appreciate that Justin – as a public official – remains committed to actively serving in our community.
He has put in the sweat equity, the time and the talent. It's easy to claim that the community matters to you, especially come election time. It's another to actively look for ways to give your time and engage and make our community better.
Justin is just a good human who wants to build a community for his kids and yours. He is authentic in his desire to build community.
We all only have 24 hours in a day and need to decide where to invest our time and talent.
Justin is invested in our community - and because of this choice, I feel he understands the importance of the role as judge in a very concrete way.
These qualities are far more important to me in a local election then any partisan differences.
I'm proud to call him a friend and I'm proud to support his election bid.
