I got to know Jeanne when my mother-in-law, Rollene Wells, widow of the Rev. John Wells and mother of The Rev. Barbara Wells-TenHove, died. I was very impressed with Jeanne’s immediate presence and her skill in dealing with a family cast of thousands. Her own contributions to the service were right on.
In 41 years of full time ministry, I was actively engaged in two presidential campaigns, and as chair of two UUA committees over the years, I have more than a passing acquaintance with what is required for a successful presidency for our movement. I believe that Jeanne has the personality, skills, and experience that exceed those of any candidate for president since merger.
It is with enthusiasm that I endorse her candidacy!
Minister Emeritus at UU Church
