Steve Bennett for West Covina City Council 2020
Help us campaign today for a better tomorrow!
September 13, 2020
Throughout our journeys in life we get to meet, speak, and interact with people that assist us in shaping, developing, and impacting our lives in better understanding the challenges and successes we will encounter in our daily interactions. One such person that I have had the privilege to meet and get to know is Steve Bennett. His demeanor, professionalism, attitude, organizational skills, management techniques, and overall positive outlook has been the “glue” that impresses me as to his resolve to better improve the quality of lives of the residents of the City of West Covina.
As a high school counselor at Coachella Valley High School in Coachella for thirty years it became apparent to me over that span of time that students respond to a multitude of experiences, both positively and negatively. I have become aware of the relationship that Steve has had with little league baseball in your community. It is here that we share the commonality of seeing the youth in our respective communities strive towards attaining their dreams and goals. The attention that Steve demonstrated in his ability to accept any player, work with him/her, and continue to support and encourage them shows his sincerity and satisfaction in nourishing their development.
With this example of success, it is obvious that his sincerity, credibility, integrity, and reputation has developed into a hallmark of character. Steve’s work ethic, commitment to detail, sensitivity to others, and professional approach to people and situations make him an ideal candidate for the position as a City councilman in your community.
Steve’s personal and community achievements has inspired people of all ages and backgrounds that perseverance, dedication, and hard work do have an important role in a person’s life. With his energy, enthusiasm, and eagerness to serve, I believe that your trust and confidence in Steve will be warranted as you collectively strive to better improve the quality of life in West Covina.
In conclusion, as a retired high school counselor, little league baseball coach, and former Mayor of the City of Coachella, I strongly support and recommend that the residents of the City of West Covina support and VOTE for Steve Bennett for City Council.
