Thor is going to be an excellent councilman. He is a solid person that is only interested in service to his community. Whether it is community service or helping an elderly neighbor, Thor is always the first to help out. For him it is not about ego, but about doing what is right. His background in finance makes him the perfect fit.

I shared an office with this guy a few years back, I never knew he had an interest in local government but I'm thrilled he's running. I have nothing but good things to say about him.
