Letter: DiCarlo Has Leadership Skills for Committee

A longtime colleague of Denice DiCarlo says the candidate's leadership history makes her the best choice for West Deptford Township Committee.

To the Editor:

I am writing to endorse Denice DiCarlo for the West Deptford Township Committee. 

I have known Denice for more than 10 years. In 2002, I hired Denice at Comcast Corporation into the Corporate Accounting Department and she quickly advanced. She was my lead manager and we had a team of 16 professionals. In 2003, the vice president of financial reporting hired Denice to lead the Corporate Sarbanes-Oxley section 404 implementation. She was responsible for ensuring compliance of all corporate processes by year-end 2004. In 2006, I asked Denice to again join my new team at PBS KIDS Sprout, a Comcast joint venture, as my accounting lead. As always, Denice quickly advanced to vice president and controller. Finally, in 2010, the CFO of the Comcast Programming Group asked Denice to lead the NBCU/Comcast system integration.

Like everything Denice does, she looked at this project as an opportunity. She completed this assignment in 2011 and came back to Sprout where continues to help us grow our audience and our business. Denice is recognized as a leader by all of us at Sprout and our colleagues at NBCU/Comcast. She is a valued member of the Sprout Senior Leadership Team. 

Over the 10 years I have known her, I obviously have had the opportunity to observe Denice’s leadership effectiveness. The roles described above require Denice to not only have a natural aptitude for leadership, but also demand that she continually enhance her core leadership abilities, while developing superior technical and project management skills. 

Denice is an exceptional and effective leader. In my opinion, she possesses two key ingredients required to be an effective leader. First, Denice leads by example. Denice is an extremely hard working individual. She expects the same or more from herself, than she does from her staff. Denice consistently demonstrates an unwavering commitment to providing outstanding service and completing her assigned projects. 

Second, and maybe more importantly, for Denice, people always come first. Denice demonstrates a sincere concern for the specific needs and development of the people she has the responsibility to lead. She creates an extremely positive and collaborative environment for the team to operate to obtain maximum results. 

In summary, Denice DiCarlo has an innate gift for leadership. This talent, coupled with her dedication and concern for the individual, provides an exceptional formula for a successful leader and what we want to see in all our publicly elected officials. I can think of no better person to be elected to the West Deptford Township Committee.

Few&proud; why was he afraid to debate ms. DICARLO last note? As usual all talk nose se
Wayne Klotz November 03, 2012 at 02:02 PM
I meant last nite and no sense! My bad!
Duchess November 03, 2012 at 02:43 PM
Wayne you're still bad! You really need to go back to school, your spelling and grammar are appalling! Perhaps you had a few too many beers last night (yes, that's how you spell it) in Mommy's basement. It was Jeff Hansen that showed up last night, where was your mighty leader Denice, I would say she was the one who was afraid of the debate, perhaps because a few more lies would come out.
William Libby November 03, 2012 at 04:36 PM
And I guess if you are appointed to the RiverWinds Advisory Committee under Hansen you would feel that way Colonel! For the record Hansen and his "friend" (not the moderator) were there. As for the lies, #16 on the 20 point campaign plan says no pay to play. Jeff is a fraud and has accepted numerous contributions from the very people he said he never would. Talk about lies and hypocrisy! The only thing you ever got close to correct is when you said it is a circus. Too bad it is a three ring circus and Sam, Ray and Jeff are the ring leaders.
Wayne Klotz November 03, 2012 at 05:54 PM
ducess; ask youself a simple question; how many we're republicans? I'll bet you a drink that they,all 50 people were your republican cronies! Hansen had all of September, October and one week in November! What's your answer or can you come up with one? I just got his literature and I have to say he's the liar and it will show on Tuesday nite! Have a beer on me,Sam!!!
Duchess November 03, 2012 at 09:15 PM
Wayne and Keeping it Real, you both sound so bitter and like a couple of school kids. Obviously you couldn't have been at the debate last night Wayne because I saw quite a few D's there and quite a few unhappy D's too, unhappy with the lies, corruption that this town has had to put up with over the last 20 years. Well Tuesday night it will all be changing and Wayne you can buy me that drink!
Wayne Klotz November 03, 2012 at 09:30 PM
Duchess, you still did not answer the question! he had two(2) months to agree on a debate date but why didn't he agree? Scared?! Admit it, duchess. You are scared to!
EricR November 03, 2012 at 09:41 PM
Let me start off by saying that I'm an independent and up until a week ago I was still unsure who I was going to vote for. After being inundated though with all the negative mailings from Mr. Hansen though there is no way I'm voting for him. I'm not sure why he went that route. From reading all of the information on him he seems like a nice guy with some good ideas. Why not just run on those ideas? If I voted for him is his campaign an indication of how he would act if elected? If someone presented a different idea that he didn't agree with would he resort to the same negativity instead of working to find a compromise or a middle ground? I'm not willing to take that chance so I'm going to have to vote for Ms. DiCarlo. I hope the Republicans and Democrats can work together to make West Deptford an even better place to live.

Can't wait for Tues.. Hanson Win's.
Occupant November 03, 2012 at 10:55 PM
Wayne is currently underage to buy you a drink. The truth hurts!.
redneckwillie3 November 04, 2012 at 12:27 AM
wayne have you ever considered going on that reality show the biggest loser and i'm not talking about weight. you and your BUDDY keeping it real are clueless when it comes to west deptford politics.you've been so caught up in the democRATic regime for the past 20 years your one brain cell is having a hard time functioning. 3 MORE DAYS and dicarlo will be on her way to defeat and her short political career will come to an end.just maybe we can get one more lie from her by then
My Town Too November 04, 2012 at 03:16 AM
EricR, You believe the negative mailers are from the R camp? Did you get the D mailer, without disclosure and without a return label, but a link to their cheezy site where they slander a R supporter? Someone that is not even running? Some that volunteers and has a family and pays his taxes? And have you seen the Dem site? No credibility, no factual documents, and nothing but negative ads. If calling out someone that LIES about HER credentials and where they went they went to school is negative....I'll take it! The truth hurts.
Dave November 04, 2012 at 01:07 PM
I am flabbergasted to say the least. PATCH where is your late breaking story Friday afternoon to say the debate appears not to be on. You certainly have breaking stories when a goal is scored or a cat is in a tree on Lockesly Lane. Your absolute news about the debate was Friday morning telling us there may not be a debate. No news after, no news since. You didn't even report that folks showed up last Friday night. The only news of that is in the commentary following this and maybe another story. Patch could you have not had one of your late breaking stories Friday "Debate Still Off" or "Parties Decide To Show Anyway". Possibly the second hypothetical story you had no idea. Because....... The dems might have decided not to publicize it or show because of thier unreasonable obstanance at a moderatir choice. The GOP planned to show never to publicize so they cluld say "look we showed and nobody else did". All along the PATCH never took the initiative or duty to follow the story more leading up to the assigned time. The party leaders news to stop dictating the actions and believe of those running and give what the residents deserve honest, heated, respectful forum to help them decide. Not a late breaking story a doily sale at the Mantua K-Mart. Is there a good Indeoendent in the house that isn't cloistered or leashes by thier party?
Dave November 04, 2012 at 01:09 PM
Leashed not leashes in case Mr Klotz tries to spell check me.
Wayne Klotz November 04, 2012 at 04:00 PM
Dave and gang; you still did not answer the question! Why did Jeff not debate Denice since he had September, October and part of November!!!dave, you claim you are smart !! Answer the question!! How about you guys, Willie, al Henry, occupant and gang!!
Wayne Klotz November 04, 2012 at 06:04 PM
Hey morons of the Sam I am a complete loser fan club; you guys did of answer the big smart question!! How come Jeff did not want to pick September, October, or this past few days in November to debate Denice?! Dave, you are the smart one, even you would not know it by the way you and your friends write! So answer the question, smart one!?
redneckwillie3 November 04, 2012 at 07:24 PM
that's the chair Dicarlo would be sitting in if she was elected.just letting the people know that there is one more dem sitting in the chair and that is good old Donna S.
Wayne Klotz November 04, 2012 at 08:12 PM
Dave; what's up with your answer, mr.brain?
Dave November 04, 2012 at 09:17 PM
Gotme klutzy.
Wayne Klotz November 04, 2012 at 10:23 PM
Willie, and she will be sitting there again. Dave; I guess you are not as smart as you or the rest of your cronies thought you were. just to show you you donot have any issues or donot have an agenda to help this town, GENIOUS!!!!
redneckwillie3 November 04, 2012 at 10:45 PM
wayne one question when denice loses on tuesday does that mean you won't be spewing at the mouth on here anymore or are you going to go thru a lot of crying towels wiping away the tears.Dicarlo is not very well liked in this township.Oh she has a few but in reality ever since the Boe days she is hated because if they liked her that much she should have been elected last election. to lose again what is that going to tell you Klotz.
Wayne Klotz November 04, 2012 at 11:16 PM
That you are a idiot. We will see Tuesday, loser!!!
al henry November 05, 2012 at 12:05 AM
Oh Wayne,..will you too go away after Dicarlo loses Tuesday? I'll be the first to say I told you so! Can't wait to rub it in!
Few & Proud November 05, 2012 at 12:20 AM
Mr.Libby thank you for the promotion, but I was not at officer grade. I do not know who you are referring to. I was an E-5. I served under real leadership. Mrs. DiCarlo is not. Mrs. DiCarlo finally disgusted me when she blatantly deceived and misrepresented Hansen's son being on Villary's team. His last year as WD coach, Hansen's son was in sixth grade. Hansen only has a three point plan. Explain this then Angelini has contributed $4500 to the campaign of DiCarlo. So, if DiCarlo wins, Angelini will not contribute?
Wayne Klotz November 05, 2012 at 12:41 AM
What did you do; change your name already?! Donot cry.to hard, al or would you like to be called redneckwillie3!!!
Occupant November 05, 2012 at 01:32 AM
Warning!!! Wayne Klotz is a judge at the polls Tuesday. Can you believe it? Must know someone. Can't even form a sentence and he works the polls... I don't trust him. watch how you vote.
Wayne Klotz November 05, 2012 at 01:56 AM
Occupant; where have you been for the last thirty(30)yrs, come vote and I'll make sure you donot disturb the peace! Just hope you have the guts to cause trouble!!! I am ready for you, occupant, or are you Dave, Willie, Samantha,Sam, Brandon, or rando!! Cannot make up your minds on real names can you'd?!!!
Wayne Klotz November 05, 2012 at 02:34 AM
Just in case you guys want to know what I meant, I will tell you so even you, occupant, will understand! If I, being a judge, feel there is a disturbance going to happen, I will call the police! I hope you guys think twich before you even think of causing a scene! Mark my words; you cause trouble in my polling place, I will have you prosecuted!!!!!!
Occupant November 05, 2012 at 12:26 PM
I hope you know the difference between the machine keys and your car keys, That's assuming your old enough to drive... God help us all.
