It is my honor to endorse Andy Langford for Concord City Council, District 1. I have followed Andy closely throughout his first term on the Council and in my opinion, he has earned the right to represent the citizens of Concord for a second four year term. Andy governs with his heart as well as his head - a quality of leadership that is becoming difficult to find in elected officials. Please join me in electing Andy Langford as our representative on the Concord City Council, District 1 on November 7.

One of my primary goals after graduating college was to find employment that would allow me to come back and live in the community I loved and called home. For over forty years I have had the pleasure of coming to work every day in Concord. I have watched with pride as our community grew and flourished. Over those years I have been witness as private citizen and elected leaders made wise decisions that enabled us to make solid progress in our built and business environment. The decisions that our leaders need to make today continue to be critically important, and our continued success depends on electing individuals with good ideas, clear vision, and collaborative leadership abilities.
That is why I continue to support Andy Langford for Concord City Council. In the many years that I have known Andy he has always exemplified the ideal of a servant leader. Andy is committed to action, but only after dialog with all concerned, taking every person's priorities into consideration in a thoughtful and reflective manner. Andy makes wise and informed decisions for our city, and his engaging leadership style allows all those with something to contribute to have input into what tomorrow's Concord will be. I am proud to support Andy Langford for Concord City Council.
