RE: Community Relations Director

I enclose my resume in response to your September 18, 2004 ad in the Wellington Gazette for a Community Relations Director. It seems a surprisingly good match for my background, and I would welcome an opportunity to discuss it with you personally.

My considerable experience as a highly successful, respected, and beloved pastor/ counselor/ teacher, briefly summarized on the enclosed resume, testifies to my relationship-building expertise - I am confident in my ability to represent Maris Gardens to prospective residents and their families. My work with diverse populations has honed my innate ability to recognize needs and present workable solutions - I can easily relate to your customers. Of course, successful networking with civic and religious leaders in local and state communities, office personnel, administrators, executives, children, and adults is one of my fortes.

With my experience in volunteer recruitment, public speaking, presentations, and training, I have well-developed powers of persuasion - easily translated to sales and marketing skills - and certainly ministry and teaching can be considered long-term-care industries.

I hope you can see the potential here for my making a significant contribution to your business and will give me a call. Thank you for your consideration.


Sincerely,


Anthony J. Winters
