Ted Becker has tireless work ethic
When I think of what traits define exceptional leadership, I think of someone with a tireless work ethic; someone with a deep understanding of our issues; someone who is kind and compassionate; someone who never says, "I don't have time to listen to you"; and someone who sees the long view for the health, safety and welfare of Lewes citizens. In other words, Mayor Ted Becker.
I have collaborated with Mayor Becker for more than 21 years on countless subcommittees, commissions, meetings, public hearings and workshops. Long before that time, he was already volunteering on various city commissions, which gives him institutional knowledge and a strong understanding of how the processes work and how each commission supports the other.
Not only does Mayor Becker understand the issues, he understands people and how people want to be treated: fairly, respectfully and with appreciation for their concerns.
Mayor Becker is able to look at complicated issues with clarity and devise a path forward. His network of connections has benefited the citizens of Lewes in countless ways: He reaches out to local, state and national leaders to help solve city problems and to include our city in programs that improve our lives and lifestyles.
He represents the city with grace and dignity, especially during difficult and contentious issues.
He has put city before self for decades, and I am very grateful for that. I will vote to re-elect Mayor Ted Becker and ask you to do the same.
