I support David J. Brown for State College Borough Council.
I have known David for 46 years and consider him to be a person of the highest integrity. He understands the role and operation of the council and will work to promote a fiscally healthy community within the framework of making it a vital community that attracts a broad range of people to the downtown.
How does one accomplish all these things together? One way is to be a good listener and take seriously the suggestions that come from members of the community.
As a retired psychologist who has lived in the borough since he came here to work — first for the university and then for a psychology firm in town — he has perhaps the best background I can think of to be a good listener.
He is also a problem-solver, and we certainly need that attitude in dealing with the range of issues that come before the council.
Our community would be well served by electing David J. Brown to the Borough Council, and I am pleased to be one of his supporters.
