Choosing Chuck: Rolecek a strong council candidate
Of the three Republicans running for the chance to replace Ray Wieczorek on the Executive Council this fall, Bedford businessman Chuck Rolecek is the strongest.
An executive councilor’s job consists primarily of scrutinizing state contracts and vetting a governor’s nominees. Rolecek has 35 years of business experience that ought to serve him well in both of those tasks. In addition, he brings the right attitude to this race.
Rolecek hopes to use his skills and creativity to improve executive branch efficiency and make the state leaner and less costly for the taxpayers. He does not simply assert that his business background qualifies him to serve, he suggests ways in which the council might help the governor cut costs.
Moreover, he listens. Rolecek brings his own ideas to the table, but he also actively invites suggestions from the public. He has done that for years in his businesses, which has helped to make them highly successful, and he is doing it on the campaign trail.
That is the kind of leader who would serve the taxpayers well on the Executive Council. Republicans voting in the District 4 primary would do well to send Rolecek on to the general election in November.
