Letter to the editor: Backing Barlow in State College

I support Jesse Barlow for State College Borough Council.

He has lived in the community for 33 years and raised two children here, one of whom is a current Penn State undergraduate. He has been active in church (sings in the choir) and on the Voices board. He serves on the board of the State College Land Trust and is a professor of computer science and engineering at Penn State.

Our borough needs people with Barlow’s knowledge, experience and dedication on its council. His stated positions that especially appeal to me include: supporting regional cooperation through support of pending legislation to allow municipalities to develop their own internet and follow up in the Centre Region; favoring green growth that reduces our carbon footprint; and advocating for policies that encourage locally owned businesses.

Join me in supporting Barlow for Borough Council. We need him.
