Letter: Vote for longtime leader Pitman

From: Mary Glasson


Most people associate Bob Pitman with his long career as director of the senior center. I have also known him for the many intergenerational programs he has initiated.

For several years, I and a number of other senior citizens met weekly with students at Jefferson Education Center in the Linking Lifetimes program. These students were struggling with many issues, and most lacked positive adult role models in their lives. We seniors mostly listened, but also have encouragement by sharing the difficult challenges we have overcome in our lives. We also went on field trips together.

I still am recognized from time to time by now young adults who remember my volunteer experience at Jefferson.

Please vote for Bob for state representative as a longtime leader who cares about all members of the community.
