J.B. Bennett Is A Good Man

Thursday, January 9, 2014

Politicians and lawyers are often pointed to as shady characters. We've all heard a lawyer joke. But a few are examples of public servants and what's right in America. Some are the leaders we need in our community and nation. J.B. Bennett is one such leader. 

J.B. Bennett is a guy who has time for you, no matter your last name or social standing. He enjoys spending time with young people. You may see J.B. having lunch with a well known business leader (Baby Boomer) or coffee with a young professional (Gen X'er or Millennial). Of course, he has many friends in the business community and is active in many civic organizations. He's not a guy that sits around. He has a big heart and active feet and hands.

I'm not telling anyone how to vote. I am saying we need people of character in the judiciary and elected office. I know J.B. is a man of character, just like his dad Bill Bennett. J.B.'s service to our community will not end on election night; nor did it begin when he announced for office. That's a fact I'm proud of and another reason I'm proud of him. You'll be proud of him too. J.B. Bennett, a good man.
