I am writing this letter in support of Tom Linford, candidate for alderman in Ward 4, Warrenville. Over the past 25 years, Tom has resided in Warrenville and has put in many hours of work in the community. He is one of the most dedicated people I know and cares deeply for the citizens in Warrenville.
Tom attended Drake University in Iowa and graduated with a B.A. in business administration. He was also a member of the faculty at West Point Military Academy. A company commander in Vietnam, Tom is highly decorated for his military service, receiving a Purple Heart and two Bronze Stars.
During Tom's career, he successfully ran the operations for a $100 million business, managing more than 380 people. Diagnosed with cancer in 2007, Tom fought and beat the disease.
Tom is the type of individual who wants to make a difference. When he becomes aware of issues or trends that need to change, Tom rolls up his sleeves and goes to work. I asked Tom why he wants to be an alderman; his response is simple. He wants to serve and give back to the city he loves so much. He is absolutely the type of person we need to represent Ward 4 in Warrenville, and I am honored to support Mr. Linford in his candidacy.
