Yes! COAF had the honor of sitting with Mr. Seyfried last evening to discuss his position on various issues the county must deal with. Certainly Gracedale was at the top of our list.
Jerry was very sincere and honest in his discussion with us. We see him as a member of the community who has nothing to gain by his election, but everything to give.
What we mean by that is that Jerry is retired, and at this point in his life he considers himself very blessed without need, but also blessed with a desire to give back to his community.
In our opinion, that is very admirable because some of the candidates who have spoken to us (seeking our support) continuously say I, I, I, like John Callahan did during his announcement. Jerry on the other hand say's we, and us, and together. That is very important to all of us within COAF, and to our 23,000.00 plus supporters.
As we expressed to Mr. Seyfried, we are seeking to support and elect candidates who truly care about the people and the county, and who promise never to forget who they work for...
We also expressed to him that we have no desire to tell our county government how to do their jobs (other than to do it right the first time), but promised him (as we have others), that we will hold him accountable should he stray off a true-north course.
We will ask all of our readers to please go to this link: The Administration Was The Road-Block!
You will hear Jerry Seyfried, one of our choices for County Council this year, speak first about his experience, and then about Gracedale.
He stands firmly behind his words when he states that during the Gracedale Initiative, the Unions were willing, but the Stoffa Administration was the actual road-block.
