It’s been my experience as a member of state appointed boards that it takes more than showing up at meetings to be a good leader--it takes outreach, research and listening.

You can often see John Schlarmann engaged in conversation to find out the concerns of those he serves. He doesn’t compromise his integrity or responsibility.

The best leaders consult with others in similar positions; sometimes adapting new methods and solutions that provide better results and often save money.

Leadership requires commitment, and John Schlarmann has shown his dedication and follow through in every leadership role in which he has served.

He’s organized, works hard and works smart.

And he gets things done.

He has my vote, and I hope yours.
