John Alexander has my enthusiastic support for his candidacy for a one-year seat on Castleton’s Select Board.

John has expressed a commitment to bringing civility and cooperation to our town government. He is dedicated to growing our business base and attracting new families to our town. In this time of shrinking populations, he will be exactly the type of person we need to join our team and promote growth.

John is a lifelong resident of Castleton and has donated a large portion of his free time volunteering on the fire department and supporting youth athletics. John is a quiet man; however, I have learned over the years that when he speaks, you should listen. He often reminds me of a quote from Plato. “A wise man speaks because he has something to say, a fool speaks because he has to say something.” John is no fool.

I have known John for many years and have always found him to be a level-headed, hardworking individual. He has always been one of the go-to guys on the fire department when the going gets rough. I am looking forward to working with him in the coming year, and urge you to support him, as well.
