I have seen many letters of support for Tony London for county commissioner in the paper the last several weeks. I would like to add my support to the list and explain why Tony is the best person for the job. I have known Tony for 31 years (since 7th grade) and I have seen him grow through life experiences into the responsible husband, father, businessman, youth and community advocate that he is today at age 44.
Tony’s leadership skills started to develop at Columbus North High School when he was elected student body president our senior year.
Tony then attended Indiana University — Bloomington and graduated on time, in four years with a bachelor degree in political science. Tony paid for his own college education and understands living within ones means and fiscal responsibility.
Shortly after graduation, Tony moved back to Columbus and founded what has become The Tony London Co. Inc., a successful company which provides wages that support several families in our community. Through Tony’s life experiences he has developed several key traits that I feel make him the best candidate to be one of our county commissioners.
Tony and I have talked over the years about many different subjects and what has impressed me is Tony’s ability to make a person truly think through what they are advocating or pursuing to ensure that they are making the right decision for themselves. Tony is a strategic thinker who challenges himself to think outside the box. Tony is an excellent listener.
Tony has the ability to listen to all different sides of an issue without prejudice and then make fact and data based decisions without allowing emotions to effect the situation. Tony CARES about Bartholomew County’s well being.
If you want your opinion on an issue to be heard, Tony will be approachable. Tony will look at issues that come before the Commissioner’s without political bias and will make decisions based on the facts and data presented that he feels serve the best interest of Bartholomew County. Tony will ask the tough questions that are needed and will demand answers before voting on issues.
So if you want a county commissioner that will truly lookout for what is in the best interest for all residents of Bartholomew County, will encourage and facilitate debate on important issues before the county commissioners, not just be a rubber stamp for either party’s position and will make data and fact based decisions then Tony London is the candidate that you should vote for. Vote for Tony London!
