Editor: Please accept this letter of appreciation and support of Tom Christy for Seminole City Council.
Tom Christy cares about the people of Seminole. Tom was vice chairman of the most recent Charter Revision Committee for the city of Seminole. This will be the last local election held in March as a result of the many changes the public approved and the committee put forth. This cost-saving change will benefit all taxpayers in Seminole, as future local elections will become part of the November elections.
Tom listens to and respects the advice of others. He supports improved public safety for Seminole, such as reduced speed limits in the City, and additional crosswalks and stoplights where needed. And a study to improve pedestrian and cycling safety on all streets in Seminole.
Christy actively supports the Seminole Mall. He frequents the restaurants there. He banks at the mall. And we have attended many events at Seminole Mall. He always had a table at the First Friday events at the mall, in conjunction with Freedom Square.
Tom is an active member of St. Justin Martyr Catholic Church in Seminole. He has ushered at the 9:30 a.m. mass on Sundays and whenever needed during the week. He assists with any ministry that needs help. And he is always there to lend a hand when needed. Tom has a special rapport with people, and they love him for that. He recently worked on picking up and delivering for the church thrift store. And he assisted folks far and beyond that in service to the people of Seminole, and his own community in Seminole Gardens, where he owns a condo.
Tom has a special bond with the residents, board, and management in the Townhomes of Lake Seminole, as well. Tom hardly knew me when he offered to help move my mother from the townhomes to Freedom Square, where he has attended a number of events there as well. He loves to dance, and the folks there appreciate his attention.
Tom appreciates and understands the meaning of community service. Giving something back to the community you live and work in. He loves Seminole and is a people person, who always puts others first, before personal considerations. Christy cares about Seminole, and listens to and respects other peopleís ideas and input. Tom is just the right person to place on the Seminole City Council. He will work with the folks to move the city forward. He will work for the people to bring in much-needed economic development, improved public safety, and growth.
My strongest recommendation is to vote for Tom Christy for Seminole City Council. Tom Christy cares.
