I am writing to support the candidacy of Mark Siedlecki for the office of Hamilton County assessor of property. Mark and I met over 10 years ago, when I was serving as the interim priest at his home parish and he was serving as the junior warden of the parish church.
Under our system, the junior warden is elected by the people of the congregation to serve on the lay governing body known as the Vestry. The responsibility of the junior warden is to oversee the care and maintenance of the church building and grounds. The junior warden is in effect the volunteer "workhorse" of the parish, as the job requires unlimited hours, skill,energy, and patience. The person holding this office has to be able to deal with and empathize with people of all ages and temperaments. In today's world, this job also calls for a person who is technologically skilled and well organized.
I can personally testify that Mark fulfilled the responsibility of junior warden with grace, skill and efficiency.
It is my conviction that Mark Siedlecki will bring all that technological skill, efficiency and genuine caring to the position of assessor of property, Hamilton County. I have already voted for Mark, and recommend that you do the same.
The Reverend Dr. H. Hunter Huckabay, Jr.
