I am writing in support of Jim Boyes’ candidacy for the Westfield Town Council Ward 1 seat. As a longtime Westfield resident, I have known Jim and his family for over 20 years. I have had the privilege of working alongside Jim as a volunteer for several non-profit, philanthropic organizations.

When Jim and I volunteered at a church in Plainfield last Thanksgiving morning, he not only served the food but volunteered to stay late and wash the pots and pans.

On the weekends, Jim could always be found on the fields coaching his sons’ soccer games. These are just a few of the ways Jim contributes to his community. Whether it’s attending meetings, participating in community outreach, or helping the less fortunate, Jim is always there – he shows up for everything. Jim is a fabulous public servant.

Jim is also a wonderful family man, providing love and support to his wife and three children. As a respected member of the community as a “giver” and a “doer,” Jim is the ideal asset for the Westfield Town Council.  I cannot think of anyone better suited for the job than Jim Boyes.
