I have lived in Summit for 28 years. It is a great community with beautiful homes, safe streets, exceptional schools, incredibly generous people and many offerings for all tastes. However, it is not immune to the changes in the world and to the challenges and opportunities that those changes provide.
I support a change in Summit. I fully support Nora Radest and Richard Sun as two new leaders for our community.
I have met with or seen Richard Sun on several occassions now - in different settings and with different set of individuals from the community. Richard is authentic, he is smart and he is inclusive. He does not boas,t but listens and relates and finds what is common. He is able to relate to senior citizens, families, young adults, and the across the broad spectrum of ethnicity in our city. He understands the world we now live in yet he cherishes his family roots and upbringing. He leverages the best of both worlds to bring a vibrancy and hope for the future of Summit.
I have known Nora Radest over the years as an active supporter of Summit's students and families. I have also grown to know Nora's passion for communications - her focus on listening to all voices and understanding what makes each individual tick - what keeps them up at night and how the community can help. She understands that government of the people needs to represent the people. She understands the value of diversity in action - not only soliciting help from the different sections of Summit but engaging with them. She understands that change can only happen when you have the full team rowing together.
Please Vote on November 3. We have an enormous priviledge in our right to vote and huge responsibility in the selection of our leaders. Vote for Richard and Nora on Tuesday November 3.
