Vote Aron Carleson for mayor

Recently an article in the Hillsboro Tribune made reference to the Hillsboro firefighters. Who could they endorse for mayor? The firefighters' conclusion was that they would not choose, but endorse both.

We have to choose. Only one person can be the Hillsboro mayor. If you were to read that article, Carleson acted while another candidate supported.

Aron Carleson is a doer. She is in the trenches working, whether it be spearheading a deal for the Hillsboro baseball team, working with the school district or many issues throughout the city. The Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce has already recognized her for her tireless work on behalf of the Hillsboro community.

I have first-hand knowledge of Aron’s abilities. Aron is the executive director of the Hillsboro Schools Foundation. As treasurer I have observed her coming up with more ideas and programs to take the foundation to the next level. The foundation has experienced tremendous growth and has proved to be an integral part of the Hillsboro School District and the Hillsboro community.

Aron is a driving force. I have worked for many CEOs in my lifetime and Aron is one of the best. Elect her and watch her go to work. Hillsboro will benefit in a big way. I admire and respect her, and would always be willing to work hard to follow her lead.
