I write this letter of support for Nicole Poland Kalloch, who is running for Rockland City Council in the election scheduled for November 2.
While I have known her husband for a longer period of time, Nicole and I first became acquainted a few years ago while I was involved with Rockland Main Street, Inc., the City’s downtown revitalization, economic and community development program.
At the time, she was formulating the plan to relocate Sierra Peaks, [formerly known as Intricon/Tibbett’s Industries], the business that she manages, from Camden to Rockland. That business, which involves the development and manufacture of a variety of advanced technical equipment, has been a success thanks to Nicole’s leadership as the site manager of the facility that employs over a dozen engineers and skilled technicians.
Throughout the entire process, including researching real estate availability, zoning, property acquisition, renovation, and eventual relocation of an entire industrial plant and its employees to Rockland, Nicole demonstrated an innate capacity for negotiation, collaboration, and most especially, for getting the job done.
Nicole is committed to working toward improving Rockland through her community involvement, her significant knowledge of business and logistics, and supporting the projects that will make a difference in the lives of the City’s residents and taxpayers.
If you reside in the City of Rockland, please be sure to register to vote, and then cast your vote for Nicole Poland Kalloch for City Council on the 2nd of November.
