To The Daily Sun,
I met Reuben Wentworth soon after I moved to Alton a little over seven years ago. From the outset, it was clear that he is someone special in the Alton community. His counsel is sought by many on subjects ranging from home repairs, to politics, to community issues and even to personal matters. His long history of giving to his community led to Reuben being selected Alton Citizen of the Year three years ago.
Reuben's background explains a lot about his character. He grew up in a family that understood the importance of community and was committed to community service. In 2009, Reuben's mother, Dorothye Wentworth, was the first person selected as Alton Citizen of the Year. She was recognized for her decades of giving so much to the Alton community. Her son embraces the same values.
If elected to serve on the Alton Board of Selectmen, Reuben will bring much to the board, including eight years of prior experience as an Alton selectman. More importantly, he will give us fairness and openness in his decision-making. On matters of money and taxes, Reuben is a responsible fiscal conservative. He will spend no more than is necessary, but will study and recognize those things that are necessary and see that they are appropriately addressed.
In short, Reuben Wentworth is a man of principle with values, experience and judgment that are important to the Alton community. He was raised in a tradition of community service. He will look at the issues from a long-term perspective and do what he thinks his right for the common good. Please join with me and vote on March 14 for Reuben Wentworth for the Alton Board of Selectmen.
