Absecon’s Charlie Campbell,93, remains a reluctant hero as a soldier to his country and as a husband and father to his family./Submitted Absecon’s Charlie Campbell,93, remains a reluctant hero as a soldier to his country and as a husband and father to his family./Submitted This column is all about Charlie Campbell. Well, not exactly all about Charlie Campbell. You see, at the age of 93, there are certain parts of Charlie’s extraordinary life that he just doesn’t like to talk about. First, Charlie is not someone to toot his own horn. Beyond that, like many who have lived through the horrors of war, there are events that Charlie would like to forget if he could. He certainly does not wish to share them with others.

From the Mayor’s Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong From the Mayor’s Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong A few years ago, my family had a medical emergency, and we placed a 911 call for ambulance service. Absecon Emergency Services (AES) promptly dispatched an ambulance. Their emergency medical technicians responded and handled their assignment professionally and efficiently. Fortunately, the outcome for our family was successful. From all in Absecon with whom I have spoken about their use of AES, this experience is typical of the professionalism of that organization.

This will be my thirty-fifth weekly column since I took office as Mayor last January. Over that time, I have tried to use this opportunity to both inform and entertain while providing information about how City government operates and advising our residents of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. I have also recognized from time to time some of the folks who make Absecon such a wonderful community. By all accounts, these columns have been generally well received, and with the Current’s cooperation, I intend to continue them for the rest of my tenure. That said, with the first snow flurries of the winter, it seems an appropriate time to take stock of my first year in office and attempt to relate what it has been like serving as your Mayor.
