  1. This guy looks very nice and is certainly well accomplished, but didn’t we have anybody locally qualified for this job? It’s hard to get the exact same experience as he has living here. This is why there are no jobs for people from town and why they have to move away.

    Despite this I’m sure he’ll do a great job and be an asset to the community.
