To the Editor:
As the complexities and challenges of running Pataskala and its overlaying districts continue to grow, it is important with each election that residents find the best people to fill the City Council seats.
The community is fortunate to have Timothy Hickin running for City Council.
Over the past 15 years, I have witnessed Tim working on numerous local service and volunteer efforts within our community.
His commitment to serve stands head and shoulders above most, not only in his initiative, intelligence and creativity, but also in his ability to function as a productive member of a team. His intellect is matched by his ability to communicate clearly, collaborate with others, and do so with a friendly persona towards colleagues.
Timothy's excellent communication skills, positive outlook and pleasing personality enhance natural leadership qualities. His willingness to accept challenges and listen to input enable him to contribute thoughtful, well-reasoned approaches to solve difficult problems that challenge Pataskala and the surrounding area.
As a resident, local businessman and father of school-age children, Tim has a vested interest in the success of Pataskala. I respect him as a leader, trust him as a friend and encourage you to vote for Timothy Hickin for Pataskala City Council.
