I believe that a person who serves a community as an elected member of a governing board must be able to listen to their constituents with patience and empathy. During 10 years of intense, often emotional, listening, Carol Fowler, candidate for the Middletown Township Committee, has learned that lesson well.
In her current work as Assistant Curator of the National Guard Militia Museum and Director of its Oral History program, Carol has recorded interviews with over 400 veterans who have shared their stories with her, often for the first time. Their tales are a mixture of humor, heroism, fear and wonder – unique personal accounts of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. These stories grew from Carol’s work developing the series, “Triumphant Spirit: America’s World War II Generation Speaks” produced for Brookdale College. Carol Fowler will always be remembered for capturing these stories that are treasured by family and friends and preserved in national archives.
Carol is as committed to serving Middletown residents with as much dedication and integrity as she has served our veterans. I hope every Middletown resident casts their vote for Carol Fowler. With Carol on the Committee, we will be heard once more!
