Lewes will be well-served by Morgan

May 9, 2014

Recent Letters to the Editor in the Cape Gazette have mentioned experience as an important criteria for determining who we should vote for in the upcoming Lewes City Council election, and indeed, we are fortunate that all three candidates have a great deal of experience in areas that would benefit us.

However, for me, the real consideration is how that experience translates into action that would best serve the residents of Lewes. In meeting the challenges of change, experience can only be positive when it favors smart growth. As residents, we need to focus our priorities on the realities of ever diminishing available land and on the preservation of our environment; otherwise, the good quality of life in Lewes will be placed in jeopardy. I feel that Rob Morgan best serves these objectives.

Rob has a finance background, but more importantly, he has a keen interest and understanding of environmental issues, having done pro bono work as finance chair and general counsel of the National Wildlife Refuge Association. Rob is a productive volunteer member of the Lewes community and among other endeavors, has served as a teacher and council member of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.


He is hard working, thoughtful and respectful. The citizens of Lewes would be well served by Rob, now and well into the future.
