Colin Johnson Is What Walden Wants - And Response

Thursday, October 29, 2020

Colin Johnson has the experience, energy and passion to serve as alderman of the town of Walden and is the best candidate for the position.

Colin has 15 years of experience in engineering and management and is best suited to oversee the re-development of the Lines Orchids site.  The project has been approved and we now need an experienced leader to guide and manage the project for the betterment of the Walden community.  There is no better candidate than Colin, a licensed civil engineer. 

On a personal level, we have gotten to know Colin and his family over the last year since we moved back to the community from Atlanta.  Our sons met at vacation Bible school and have been best friends since.  He volunteers his time to coach soccer and serve as a lay leader and Sunday school teacher in his church.  He will put the same energy that he has for his family and civic activities into his role as alderman. 

While not originally from the area, Colin has chosen to call Walden home for the last four years and for many years to come.  He recognized a need in the community for strong leadership and vision as the town grows. He is running for this position, not to serve his personal interests, but based on the needs and desires of the residents of Walden.  He is passionate about the citizens of Walden, its economic well-being and the vision for our future.

Our town will be in great hands with Colin’s leadership as alderman.  Colin is “What Walden Wants”.

My family and I have been fortunate to have Colin Johnson and his family as neighbors in Walden. Over the past two years, I have been witness to this man's personal character as an especially helpful, friendly and kind neighbor and friend. 

Colin and his family are the type of people that show up the first day you move into the neighborhood with a bucket of water bottles (on ice) for your family and the moving company employees. Colin and his family are those neighbors who will promptly stop what they are doing on a cold, rainy night and immediately launch a local grassroots effort to help you find your lost dog. Colin is that guy that helps you back a U-Haul trailer into your driveway when you are in over your head. Colin is that guy you can count on to lend you jumper cables (or anything else you might need) in a pinch.

In my opinion, Colin Johnson is part of a dying breed - he is one of the last true family men that I know. He seems to always be up for an adventure with his family, traveling in their RV to camp at the beach or in the mountains. Oftentimes I have glanced out my front window and have spotted Colin in the front yard with his kids working on soccer drills, passing the football around or firing up the smoker and/or calling us over to hang out around the bonfire.

For all of these reasons, (not to mention his professional background and civil involvement) I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically support Colin Johnson for Walden alderman, and encourage all other Walden residents to do the same.
