I am writing in support of Robbie Vargo's candidacy for Cedar Grove Town Council.

I have known Robbie for several years, and one thing I have learned about him in this time is that when he dedicates himself to a cause, he gives it his all.  Robbie is extremely well-organized, passionate about our Community, and is always thinking of ways to contribute to Cedar Grove in some way.

In the Spring, I had the opportunity to coach tee-ball with Robbie as part of the Cedar Grove baseball program.  During tee-ball, Robbie was always well-prepared, organized, and came to practice/games excited and ready to have fun with the kids.  He constantly made sure to communicate with parents and understand any concerns or questions they may have had.  He patiently provided the children with excellent instruction and reinforced the importance of fair play. It wasn't about winning or losing, but providing each child with an equal opportunity to play while having fun at the same time.

I have also helped Robbie put up Christmas lights for his annual Christmas light show. Robbie uses PVC piping and over 35,000 lights that are programmed to music. He spends almost three months building a wonderland to provide holiday entertainment for the community and to collect for Toys For Tots.  While the lights were fantastic, what impressed me the most was how honestly and passionately he spoke about giving back to the children through Toys for Tots.  He set an ambitious goal of collecting 1,000 toys, and to his credit, collected even more than that! His integrity and true character really shined as he spoke about the reason for the lights, and his desire to make sure every child had a smile on their face on Christmas morning.   Even though it was long, hard work, he knew that more lights, meant more presents, which ultimately meant more smiles.  This is the type of character and integrity that we need for Cedar Grove.

Robbie is easy to work with, he is a good listener, and is open and honest with everyone that he meets. He is a hard worker that puts his mind to something, and is not satisfied until he achieves his goal. Robbie is passionate about working for the greater good of our community.

As a lifelong resident of Cedar Grove, I wholeheartedly endorse Robbie Vargo for Town Council. I look forward to voting 4A on May 9th, for the candidate that has the best interests of the residents of our community in mind, Robbie Vargo.
