In these times of divisive and thoughtless political rhetoric Naomi Hyman, candidate for Talbot County Council, exemplifies candor, integrity and commitment. I have been her friend and colleague for over a decade. As the leader of a non-profit organization, a volunteer for a community fundraising initiative and as a friend, Naomi maintains focus, compassion and a sense of humor. In every role she takes on I have known her to be fair and collegial while always staying true to her values. She listens with interest, focused on building bridges among all people and all views.
All of these attributes, along with her passion for justice and fairness, makes her an ideal candidate to lead Talbot County into the future.
