As a devoted Summit resident for over forty years, I'm gratified to see bright new leaders emerge in our community. Greg Vartan  is one of those thoughtful young leaders, and I am pleased to be supporting him in his race for the Ward 2 Common Council seat.

Greg's commitment to our town and his enthusiasm to serve is obvious to everyone who meets him. I believe he possess the skills and traits needed to address challenges fairly, from a variety of perspectives and with an eye toward protecting Summit's long-term future. As a retired past member of both the Board of Education and the former Board of Recreation, it's comforting to me to think of Summit with capable and dedicated new leaders like Greg Vartan.

He is a special young man.
