Choose Miles for Maysville

Editor,

In our current political climate, it is refreshing to see someone with the eagerness to make a difference. That someone is Thomas Jordan Miles III, who is running for the Buckingham County Board of Supervisors for the Maysville District. He is energetic and passionate about the residents of Buckingham County and the Maysville District.

I have known Jordon for several years and his diverse background as director of Nutrition and Transportation for Piedmont Senior Resources on Aging, minister at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, reporter/ managing editor for The Farmville Herald, news reporter/announcer for WFLO, board of directors/ committee member for Buckingham Village Preservation Committee, and vice president of the Buckingham Chamber of Commerce shows his willingness to serve the public objectively.

He is very forthright about his agenda to maintain fiscal responsibility and preserve low tax rates, to keep open communication with constituents and community stakeholders, to promote economic development and job creation, and has a vested commitment to education and our youth.

He wants to increase broadband infrastructure, to collaborate with regional economic development and marketing entities with Buckingham Chamber of Commerce, Virginia Growth Alliance, Commonwealth Regional Council, etc. and to restart the Anti-Litter Task Force Committee.

Involvement in community activities is not an easy task but his involvement shows he is dedicated and listens to the residents of our district. His intuitive insight into our community’s problems and needs, his willingness to examine the issues and listen closely to the public’s questions and concerns, makes him the right candidate for the Maysville District.

I am writing today to express my support for his election and to spread the word to others of the value of his policies and abilities. I am hoping and praying for his success.
