Cherney is best choice for Hastings City Council

I have known Tom Cherney for the better part of 12 years. In that time, we have become very close friends. Tom is a true friend - hes there rain or shine when and if you need him. He always has time to help.

When Tom told me he was going to run for the Hastings City Council, I was concerned for him. I said, "Tom, why dont you just relax and let someone else do it? Public office can be so brutal, why would you put yourself through that ordeal?"

He simply said... "If I dont, who will?" And so he threw his hat in the ring and is running.

Its been my experience that in todays political world, even at the local level, personal agendas of many politicians are paramount and usually the driving force behind why many of them run for office.

Tom is far from being a politician. If you know him, you know that he speaks plainly, He understands the meaning of core values and the core mission of the City of Hastings.

He understands and believes the mission and purpose of the organization he involves himself with. In a word, he is truly selfless. His integrity is a hallmark of his character.

So, if people in Hastings are looking for a sincere and hardworking individual with the courage, wisdom and experience required to work for you and not be a politician - Tom Cherney is the person you can count on!
