In conjunction with my role as chairman of the documentary division of the Coronado Island Film Festival these past three years, I have had the first-hand opportunity to work in an up-close and personal manner with its co-founder, Mary Sikes. In every aspect of that work together I have found her to be straight-forward, honest, and perhaps most importantly, collegial. I never witnessed her, in all that time, to have taken advantage of her position in order to advance her own agenda. Rather, she seems to have understood that all the moving parts of a complex enterprise such as a film festival, must fit together with each other, in order to make it work. It seems to me that she would be a very effective City Council member, one who would be devoted to the needs of the community, rather than her own personal aggrandizement. She is a brilliant thinker, a razor-sharp strategist, and a lovely person all the way around.
