Thank you for your time and consideration.

Reader backs Suchocki for Precinct 4 JP

Dear Editor,

I have known and worked with Bernard R. Suchocki for the last three years. We have campaigned and serviced on Willow Park City Council together and I can truly say that Bernard is an amazingly person.

I see that many of his skills have been learned while he worked for NASA on the Apollo program and on space shuttle software. He understands how to manage a project by beginning with an iterative plan, defining tasks, assigning action items with target completion dates, providing monthly update regarding progress and producing documentation that tracks the development.

Among his many contributions to the city, he has developed a set of Guidelines of Best Practices to ensure that contracts are properly handled by setting out procedures for review, modification and approval and also by providing an index containing suggestive language to protect the city from litigation.

In addition, his guidelines contain best practices for requesting and posting agenda items, generating requests for proposals/qualifications and suggestions for writing more informative minutes.

He has also produced a 27-page typed and color-coded written analysis of a recent request for proposal with suggestions to protect the city from litigation.

I could go on and on, but I will get to the bottom line and that is that Bernard is highly productive and extremely detailed. He constantly strives for perfection.

I know that Bernard has had his sights and heart set on being a judge, but he ran for city council at the specific request of several interested persons. I have no doubt that Bernard will be a full-time judge and that he will organize the justice of the peace office and make it highly productive. I know that his ruling will be honest and fair. I am voting for Bernard and I urge everyone to do so.
