This letter is to voice support for Samantha Skura, a candidate for trustee in the upcoming village board election. I have known Samantha for about two years now and have seen her enthusiastically embrace Springville as her new home. She has demonstrated a strong commitment to our downtown retail district, working and living on historic East Main Street. In addition, she volunteers countless hours to the youth in our church, where her hard work is a true blessing.
Samantha’s energy and optimism are contagious and I have never heard a negative word from her. I feel her fresh and positive attitude will be a productive addition to the village board. Although I am not a member or supporter of the “Revitalization Party,” I believe Sam is a woman of commitment and inner strength who will not allow herself to become embroiled in the conflicts that seem to follow that party, but instead will instead focus on an agenda of collaboration, cooperation and growth for Springville – and these are things that we can all agree are needed.
