Assessing the character of political candidates

To the Editor:

We all have a good idea as to when a person has "people person" qualities.

The first people person I met in the early years of my life was the principal of the Rhinelander Junior High. The school was named after him and his name was James Williams. He was not loud and he always positioned himself among the student body.

He had a kindred heart and made it a point to know those that were high achievers but he also sought out those hiding in the shadows just to share a complimentary word.

Mr. Williams reflected his positive compassion for all students. He was not superficial or an "I" person. His total commitment was supported by his soul, his faith and caring character. That's why, after all these years, I always envision him standing in front of the class. He was in a class by himself. Why did I share this with you? Because we need to vote for people that share a good portion of this model of character so representation is not an expectation. Some might remember when a handshake was certification of a contract. People who are guided by their faith and strong moral standards need to apply.
