I am writing to express my support for Darlene Kloeppel for county executive.

I have known Darlene for decades. We have collaborated on a number of projects over the years addressing workforce development, systemic problems in the low-income community and creative solutions to alleviate those community challenges.

I know her to be smart, resourceful and also willing to make tough decisions when necessary. She is a very talented individual who has always tried to make the community a better place, and I believe the county would be well-served by someone with her skills in leadership. I urge you to vote for her this fall, as I will be doing.
