Russ Wood Jr., candidate for town council in Mamakating, is my brother. I felt compelled to write this letter in the hope of giving voters a glimpse into the man I know, the one who has quietly and humbly been involved with his community since he was young. He and his wife were instrumental in bringing the Little League in the area back to life, and both dedicated countless hours over several years to teams of kids in this area. He also contributes to a dozen other efforts without ever expecting a word of recognition.
No matter what he does, Russ is passionate and dedicated. The best interests of this community are always a top priority for him and his family. He is a fighter committed to making this a better place to live, and I think his problem-solving and listening skills will make him an asset to Mamakating.
Please show your support for Russ Wood on Nov. 8!
