I am writing today to endorse Jesica Stickles for Arlington City Council.
I met Jesica in 2011, when I first started working at the Chamber office. From our first meeting, I knew she was organized, professional and goal-oriented. She doesn’t just set a goal, she works out how to get there and follows the steps to accomplish the goal. I watched her successfully steer the Chamber through a difficult year, making the tough decisions required to reach compromises and the final goal of stability.
Jesica and I worked on several committees together. She is excellent at reading and understanding contracts and regulations and she pays close attention to details, especially in the budget. As a business owner, she knows what local small businesses need in this economy and has the ability to balance that against budget concerns.
I have always been impressed with her ability to handle any challenge that presents itself, including challenging people. She is always open to hearing from anyone with a concern or idea and is passionate about any task, committee or goal she takes on.
I have no doubt that Jesica will make an excellent and productive council member for Arlington. I highly recommend her for this position and will be voting for her on November 5th.
