I am writing this letter to endorse Tom Krieger in his candidacy for County Commission in Jonesborough District 6. I have known Tom for 20 years and have found him to be willing to go the extra mile in all the community endeavors in which he is involved.
He has served on the board of directors and executive committee for the Coalition for Kids since the coalition was formed. Tom served as president of the board during the early, formative period as we established our identity and pieced together all the programs that enabled us to grow from one site serving 25 kids to eight sites serving more than 350 kids today.
His expertise was instrumental in establishing the management, operating principles and procedures for the coalition. Additionally, he helped identify and obtain significant funding through various grants, allocations, event planning and general fundraising.
He also serves as vice president of the East Tennessee State University Foundation and chairman of the Roan Scholars Leadership Program Steering Committee. In addition, he is on the Salvation Army Advisory Board and Executive Committee. Tom always makes himself available to those who need his counsel or assistance.
I have found Tom to not only have a giving heart, but also to be a very capable fiscal planner and manager of public funds. Both traits are needed to be an effective public servant.
I hope you will join me in supporting Tom Krieger for county commissioner.
