Aaron Woolf’s background suits him well to represent people of 21st Congressional District


To The Editor:

Aaron Woolf is the producer/director of the hit documentary King Corn and the filmmaker behind the acclaimed PBS specials Blueprint America, Beyond the Motor City, Dying to Leave. The Global Face of Human Trafficking and Smuggling, and Greener Grass, Cuba Baseball, and the United States.

Other work has appeared on the Sundance and Discovery Channels and on numerous networks abroad including France’s ARTE, Italy’s RAI and Australia’s SBS. His films have won Rockie, Logie, and Peabody Awards.

Aaron graduated from Middlebury College and earned a master’s in film at the University of Iowa. The bulk of his film training took place in the field, apprenticing with Peruvian director Francisco Lombardi in Lima, and on the sets of Hollywood films in Mexico City and Los Angeles, where he specialized in cinematography and lighting.

Aaron has spoken and conducted workshops at numerous schools including Harvard, Yale and Stanford universities, keynoted conferences for groups as diverse as Just Food and the Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations and received a 2010 Rockefeller Foundation grant to support a national speaking tour on sustainable infrastructure.

Mr Woolf is knowledgeable of our north country serving on the board of the Adirondack Council. He is concerned with food and the production of it a vital part of our north country economy. He is not a Wall Streeter like Matt Doheny; he is concerned with the land and its function in our lives. He is concerned with the human dimension.

Aaron Woolf (as stated in today’s Courier/Observer) is beginning a series of community meetings with Democrat leaders in out county.

He’s a good man and will serve our New York 21st district well.

This Aaron Woolf promotion is submitted by the mystery writer Joe Stark.
