In 2017, I attended a meeting for the Red Bank Council of the Chamber of Commerce. This was a meeting of the council board members with myself and a few others attending because we were invited to get our support for the growth in the Red Bank Community and volunteering. Just before I was asked to introduce myself, a man stood up full of confidence, enthusiasm and such pure excitement at the opportunity to be asked to be a part of this future Red Bank endeavor.
His name was Tyler Howell.
There was definitely something about this guy that made me interested to learn more about him and what he was about. After a few more meetings with the Red Bank Council, we both became members of the board and our friendship began from working together to help Red Bank. I later went on to become president and I made Tyler one of the top members of my cabinet. To be honest with you, I didn't know the first thing about being a president of any board or council and felt way in over my head. One of my saving graces was having Tyler on my board. He had so much knowledge on political science from his schooling and comfort from serving on other boards, he helped me stay motivated and enthusiastic in improving the Red Bank community and its presence. His drive to help his community is infectious.
He has since moved on to serve as a commissioner with the city of Red Bank and I want to help him stay there. I own two businesses, one of which is in the city of Red Bank and the other, closely relies its residents. Tyler is a man you can always call on for an answer to a question or problem.
During the beginning of the COVID-19 Shelter-In-Place order, Tyler was calling me before I could him. With my business, he gave me constant updates on how the city was going to operate to keep us up and running and with the eventual temporary shut down of our business, he was still there to constantly check on us to see if he could offer any help. He is a great up and coming leader for the city of Red Bank and has a real vision of how Red Bank will continue to improve.
So join me in playing a positive part in this community and vote for Tyler Howell for Red Bank commissioner.
Red Bank for Business, Red Bank for Life!
