Letter in Support of Kerry Peterson for Cedar Grove Town Council

I am writing in support of Kerry Peterson for Cedar Grove Town Council. I have lived in Cedar Grove for fifty-five years. In these years, I have been actively involved in our community and have always been proud to call Cedar Grove my home. As you can imagine, during the past fifty-five years I have witnessed many changes within our community. What I have discovered is that the people of Cedar Grove are resilient, courageous, and fiercely protective of the foundation on which this town was created.

I met Kerry when she was a young girl running around the Cedar Grove pool. I watched as she became a lifeguard, taught swim lessons, and ultimately became manager at the pool snack bar. At the same time, she was an emergency medical technician and a volunteer for the Cedar Grove Ambulance and Rescue Squad.  She was very active in school as a cheerleader for the high school and an honor roll student.  Kerry realized all of these achievements by the young age of eighteen.  Even back then, I knew she was one to watch. The strong work ethic displayed at such a young age was extremely impressive.

I witnessed Kerry become a registered nurse, get married and start a family.  She remained in Cedar Grove, not only as a resident, but as an active participant in the community. I had the privilege of working with Kerry on the Cedar Grove Centennial Committee. Kerry was not afraid to voice her opinion at committee meetings.  She took charge and chaired two very important events, the centennial fundraiser and our largest event, the centennial gala. Kerry personally sold 500 tickets. I was amazed to see that the young girl I remember running around the town pool, had grown into a strong, motivated and confident woman.

As a senior citizen in the community, I recognize how vitally important it is to have leaders who will govern effectively and advocate for all Cedar Grove residents. I am confident that Kerry is this type of leader. She will seek out a wide range of voices and perspectives and work tirelessly to ensure that Cedar Grove continues to be a place we are all proud to call home. 

Please join me in supporting Kerry Peterson for Cedar Grove Town Council on May 9th
