I Wednesday, June 29, 2011 Superior Sun, Superior, Arizona Page 3 =O, n I Taylor's Take: Introducing Superior Councilman John Tameron John Tameron By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter Does John Tameron really need an introduction?- No. of course not! Yet. this is 'me' assuming that everyone has had a similar experience to my own with this delightful fellow and as a journalist, I must not make assumptions. However, what I can do is tell you what my experience has been thus far. hopefully prompting you to want to have your own, if you have not been blessed by one already. You know, this is my M.O.; I experience a person/ place/thing and then let you know what it was like...and ifI do a swell job describing said experience, you might just go have one yourself. In a way, politicians and I have a somewhat similar job, only in reverse. I take a belief and broadcast it out to many, in the hopes that it will ignite some response or action. A politician, in theory, listens to the concerns/ responses/beliefs/desires/complaints of many and then is supposed to represent the majority of this conveyed view in whatever arena he or she is elected to. I've met a few politicians in my day (here you all laugh thinking 'yeah, you're 28 years old. how many could you really have met?'), the majority of which are full of fluff, pomp and circumstance, who very happily will tell you what you want to hear and Copper Corridor Business Success Center helps local laid-off workers; workshops planned for northern county June 20, 2011 (Oracle, AZ) In recent weeks both Pinal County and Gordon's IGA have released dozens of residents from full time work.

For more information about the Copper Corridor Business Success Center call Liz Harris Tuck at 520-896-2880. then wander on to the next dutiful discussion they need to have. John is not this type of politician. I call him John. because he is John...I've never felt that I needed the formalities with him or ever felt reserve in speaking with him at all. I truly believe that he is genuinely interested in what is good for the community and how he [personally] can help others. Here's the low down on John Tameron. aside from running his own flourishing business, thus helping the community throtgh tax dollars, employment and commerce, he is the Vice President of the Superior Chamber of Commerce and, along with his beautiful wife Bhamti, can be routinely found volunteering their time at various events within the community.-He generously donates to, frankly, too many local causes to list them all...but to list a few: the Superior Little League, the Superior High School Robotics Club. The Chamber of Commerce. etc. My parents taught me at a very young age that actions speak volumes more than the words that actually come out of a person's mouth. John, to my knowledge, has done everything he said he would and then he does more. As I write this I realize that there are projects which I have talked about that I need to finish; yes, Life gets hectic. but John is great example of how it can be done. of how anything can be accomplished if you put your heart into it. He is an incredibly generous splt'it, so giving with his time, energy and (yes, I am going to say it) funds. Each of these is significant, very selfless, but I look at the last, in this economy, and think 'Wow, everyone is cinching up their billfolds and yet this man still understands that there are others who are less fortunate' and I have to say, that is pretty cool. [ have known John for right around a year. but on a better level for about nine months. I was just getting to know him when he found out I was getting married and without a moment's hesitation he extended his help, in any way, if I needed it. From working with him on various committees, I can tell you wholeheartedly that he is an honest, good man, who does his research before he makes a decision and once committing to be involved in something, fully itmerses himself to make sure it reaches its potential. I get the feeling that many of you already know this about him since he received the most votes during the primary election. However, if you don't know anything about John Tameron, please know that if you have a concern, response, belief, desire or complaint (or anything else for that matter) you can bring it to him. He is very approachable, very humble and decidedly intelligent; he will lisien with respect and compassion and will act in what he understands to be the best interests of the community. If I can promise you nothing else, I can promise you that. Call NOW for an appointment. Now available for spmmer cleanings! 520-689-2191 We accept most insurance plans and AHCCCS. 230 W.
