Searching for Randall Kennedy

21 Feb

Last week it was brought to our attention that Halifax Magazine had done an article on acclaimed elevator inspector Randall Kennedy titled “The Guy Behind the Signature”. To our surprise Randall Kennedy is a name everyone knows, yet very few speak of. But once this floodgate was opened we were a tad jealous we didn’t break the story first.

While we applaud Halifax Magazine for finding the Santa Claus of elevators.. we just have so many more questions to ask him.

So in an effort to bring to light one of Halifax’s most elusive figures, I sent Randall an email.

Now I must admit that in writing the email, I was caught up in a moment of excitement. It was not my finest piece of writing, nor least creepy. But the damage is done and it’s sitting in his in-box waiting to be read and hopefully not marked as spam.

So I share with you, the highly embarrassing letter to Randall Kennedy, elevator inspector extraordinaire.

We hope that Randall will find it in his heart to chat with us at TNTs and answer some of the questions that have been going up and down in our minds.

Good Afternoon Mr. Kennedy,

I’m writing to you after reading a recent article in Halifax Magazine “The Man Behind the Signature”. Your name has been engrained in my mind since I moved to Nova Scotia as a kid. I remember taking the elevator to ballet classes in Sunnyside Mall and seeing your neatly signed name on the wall.

Myself along with 3 other Haligonias have a pop culture blog titled “This Needs to Stop” (www.thisneedstostop.com) with a feature called “The Bees Knees”. We would love to feature you and was curious if you had the time to answer a couple of questions! (We can send them via email if you’d like!)
Thank you for your time,
Sylvia
