Smith Has the Real World Experience to Serve
To be an effective member of Common Council, it’s not about where you went to school, what you studied, or even how well you did academically. It’s not about party ideology or who you know, or whom you’ve had abstract, hypothetical, consultative conversations with.
It’s about the ability to lead and deliver results supported by a proven record of service. It’s about having real world experience that only time and the challenges of life can bring. The experience gained by the challenge of putting the needs of others before your own on the battlefield or at the dinner table. The experience, along with the day-to-day joys and frustrations, gained from the challenge of raising and educating a family in unstable economic conditions. It’s about the experience gained by the challenge of making critical, real-world, decisions that directly affect the lives of others and from which there is no turning back. The experience gained through trial and error when a leader realizes real solutions are not found in a textbook, flyers from special interest groups, or within the slides of a PowerPoint deck, but in the hard-learned lessons of life.
Only one candidate for Summit Common Council-At- Large has the required, critical, experience to serve on council. And, only one candidate has demonstrated an unconditional drive to serve at every level, at any time, whenever called, anywhere in the world. That candidate is Andy Smith.
Andy is driven by service. He has demonstrated a commitment to selfless, empathetic, service to the ideals that make our community, our country, and our families strong. From his years as an officer in the United States Army serving on the ground in the middle of a chaotic civil war in Bosnia, to starting and building a successful law practice, to serving on Summit’s Board of Health and Community Programs Advisory Board, to serving as Co-Chairman of Summit’s Memorial Day Celebration, to serving as a youth football, basketball and baseball coach, Andy has demonstrated a sincere commitment to service and gained the real-world experience necessary to be an effective and productive member of Common Council.
Please join me in supporting Andy Smith for Common Council At-Large on November 3.
