Even though I had just met Setti, I felt like I was sitting down with an old friend. As we talked about everything from public financing of elections to the current state of Newton, he was extremely knowledgeable and clearly a man that was concerned about substance. Not only did he have plans for Newton and building a relationship with the local colleges, but he also wanted to hear my ideas. To understand my experiences living as a college student and relationship my college has with its community.
So it was not just the experience and plans that I had read about that impressed me, but his genuine interest in bringing people together and getting things done. I got to meet with someone that cared enough to take the first step, and to be proactive. I was impressed not just by his resume, but by his character, and that is why after I got back from Newton I recommended to our executive board that we make Setti our first endorsement. As a College Democrat I am proud to support Setti, and hope that this serves as a first step in building bigger bridges between colleges and their communities in the future.
