To the editor:
The leadership ability of Kevin Ruane was my first impression of the man I would come to know. We met through mutual friends in the aftermath of Hurricane Charley when he supervised the complete restoration of a devastated condominium complex. He and his family were newly arrived to Sanibel, but he volunteered his time and talents to the job until its successful completion.
His dedication and commitment, together with his accounting background, made me encourage him to serve the larger Sanibel community as a whole through public office.
I have not been disappointed, and neither has our city, in his 10 years of service as council member and mayor. If you read this local paper, you are familiar with his day-to-day involvement with every aspect of Sanibel life -?planning, budget, water quality -on the local, state and federal issues.
I was proud to support Kevin Ruane 10 years ago and I am proud to endorse a proven leader today.
