Silverthorne Town Council letters of endorsement


Support for JoAnne Nadalin

I am writing in support of JoAnne Nadalin being elected to Silverthorne Town Council. I first thought it was unnecessary as JoAnne is such an obviously good choice, but she is not a self-serving person and would never tout her own attributes, so I should probably tout them for her.

I know JoAnne mostly through the Silvana’s Community Garden (SCG). I took a leadership position at the garden a few years ago and was supported by a strong group of community members. After a year or two, JoAnne came to SCG and immediately joined our steering committee as a committed member of the garden.

When I was looking to step down from the leadership position, it was a unanimous feeling that JoAnne was the natural successor as she is a person who sees what needs to be done and does it. She is one of the most organized people I know and prods others into account-ability with a gentle ease. Sometimes intelligent people allow their strengths to blossom into arrogance. JoAnne’s intelligence manifests as thoughtfulness, fairness and decisiveness.

I know she is also involved in our community as a former town planner, town council member and is active in her HOA. There isn’t a job JoAnne undertakes that she isn’t fully committed to and extremely capable of handling. I am not writing this letter to convince anyone that JoAnne is capable and deserving, just to introduce her to anyone who doesn’t already know that she is an undeniable asset to any organization she chooses to join.

Vote Kieber and Shattuck

We are most fortunate to have two independent candidates for the Silverthorne Town Council who have each served over 9-plus years on the Town of Silverthorne Planning Commission — an unpaid, but very important learning and training ground for the town council position they seek.

In town planning, Bob Kieber and Tanya Shattuck have read and re-read every petition brought before them, listened intently to the petitioner, fielded questions from the audience and made good and informed decisions to forward on to town council for action. Anyone seeking a town council seat without this type of preparation is a mere pretender.

I have been a business owner in the town of Silverthorne for nearly 32 years. The changes over the past 10-plus years have been excellent and measurable because we have been blessed with excellent and well qualified people donating their time and getting active in our town.

I support Bob Kieber and Tanya Shattuck for town council and ask that you vote for them in the April 5 election.

Nadalin deserves your vote

JoAnne Nadalin is one of those rare people you dream to find for your project or organization … ‘one in a million’, you might say.

Let me open by quoting a town council member regarding JoAnne’s service to date: “great lady JoAnne, well prepared, well-organized, very good speaker, quick on her feet & strong.”

Ask anyone who’s worked with her, and I bet they will agree. Having worked with JoAnne for the past several years, I am constantly in awe of her ability to achieve positive results no matter what the task, no matter what the obstacles, no matter who’s involved. Her keen intellect, coupled with her skill for results oriented collaborative leadership, is unparalleled.

JoAnne’s judgement is sound. She has a powerful ability to correctly assess situations because she does her homework. She listens thoughtfully, she researches thoroughly, she thinks of, and asks, the questions others haven’t even thought about. JoAnne’s attention to detail brings the fuzzy into focus for all.

With unwavering focus and high ethical standards, JoAnne is the quintessential team player, tirelessly working to achieve the best possible results for the causes she serves.

It’s very rare to have a candidate as qualified as JoAnne Nadalin. Please cast an early vote for JoAnne.
