"Realizing the cynicism towards politics today, it was refreshing to see the genuine hard work and sincerity of the Chairman and his staff,” said Mathes. “The Chairman is a fine example of a gentleman statesman who leads by example instead of cheap rhetoric. His staff was equally impressive, and friendly. After serving as an intern, and graduating from his youth programs I truly consider myself one of Hal's Pals. I hope one day to have the same impact the Chairman has had, and will work hard following his example."
