I overlooked the Simi Valley Acorn article regarding Mitch Green, Candidate for Simi Valley City Council, so I’d like to mention it this morning. I first met Mitch Green at the Simi Valley Sunrise Rotary Club several weeks ago and I immediately liked him. It’s tough to throw your hat in the ring for City Council when you’re surrounded by so many who have supported other candidates for so many years. I spoke briefly with Mitch about those challenges and his take on his candidacy. It’s never been about a desire to unseat one particular candidate for Mitch, but rather to make himself known as someone with a desire to offer new insight.
A snippet of the article from the Simi Valley Acorn…
It was a long shot that a poor kid from Oregon would grow up to be an attorney. It was unlikely that an 18-year-old private in the Army National Guard would one day command an Army helicopter company—and retire 27 years later as a major.
But he accomplished those things.
“You’re never going to know what you’re capable of unless you try it,” he said. “It’s easier to sit on the sidelines and criticize those who try to do something than it is to actually put on your suit and jump into the ring.”
Whether Mitch Green has earned your vote or not, one undisputed fact is that he’s run a super clean and honest campaign. You won’t find phony comments on his behalf on blogs and forums or catch him speaking negatively of other candidates. He is interested in playing a positive role in shaping our City’s future and will continue to hold that interest regardless of the November election results.
