Dear Loveland Magazine Readers,
I can endorse Zuch and Bednar enthusiastically, but how are voters who are not well acquainted with people on the ballot supposed to make the best decisions? I respectfully suggest that voters examine the candidates’ experiences, accomplishments, and character. And I hope you will join me in recognizing that military service is not only a selfless endeavor, but also a good predictor of character. These are challenging times in the city, and I believe that the voters of Loveland understand that character matters now more than ever.
Now is not a time to elect new representation. City Council is a place where it is rather easy for novices to impose their own agendas and biases on the community. But Zuch’s and Bednar’s Council records are well known.
Zuch entered the Navy right out of Loveland High School. He served in the Gulf, achieved the rank of E5 Petty Officer 2nd class after about 3 years, and received numerous awards including the Navy Expeditionary Ribbon and the Good Conduct Medal.
Bednar was drafted into the Army in 1970 after graduating from Ashland College. He completed basic training and then artillery training in Oklahoma. After a severe vehicle accident, he was assigned to the Reynolds Army Hospital medical unit working in the orthopedic clinic, where he remained until his honorable discharge in 1971.
For more than 15 years, Loveland-based RecruitMilitary has helped employers hire thousands and thousands of veterans into every role imaginable. Employers are eager to do so because veterans have character, work ethic, and integrity. Zuch and Bednar have demonstrated those positive attributes over an extended period of time, and so I urge you to rehire them as your representatives to the Loveland City Council.
