Williams would make fine delegate [Letter]

During both the African American Coalition's and League of Women Voters' candidates forums, Democratic "Team 13" took some not-so-subtle shots at the youngest candidate. However, folks who watched with an open mind probably concluded, as I did, that Jimmy Williams was the most thoroughly prepared, knowledgeable and enthusiastic of the candidates seeking to represent District 13 in the House of Delegates ("Two Howard forums raise fresh issues during campaign season," Oct. 2).

I recall asking a principal if having many young teachers on her staff worried her. She replied, "Goodness no. Whatever a new teacher lacks in experience is more than made up by their enthusiasm and openness to solving problems. I'll always take that over one who is too comfortable in their position and just coasting." I couldn't agree more.

Mr. Williams has clearly studied the issues and generated sound and specific strategies for improvement. While others his age may be too self-absorbed to identify the nation's vice president, Mr. Williams has spent months knocking on doors and interacting with his potential constituents, conducting a campaign on a shoestring budget.

His background as an honor student and an Eagle Scout, coupled with this willingness to sacrifice to create positive change should make anyone proud to call him delegate, or for that matter, son.
