Support for Ron Kuhnel in part because of his commitment to the environment, support for Council openness and accountability, commitment to address the pulp mill concerns, his dedication to this community and his leadership experience with the Planning Commission.
Support for Larry Glass in part because of his commitment to local businesses, support and leadership in support for the environment, neighborhood advocacy, commitment to address the pulp mill concerns, and his willingness to speak up for the public process and open government.
Big thanks to Xandra for inviting and recruiting all the candidates who came.
