As you prepare to mark your ballots for the upcoming City Council election, I urge all voters to look beyond candidate pledges and positions, which often serve to mislead us, but instead attempt to peer into the character of the person you want to represent you in city politics.
To me, this is the most telling way of identifying a candidate worthy of your vote.
Dick White is low-key, unassuming, thoughtful and intelligent. He is a hard worker, and since the first day he arrived in this community, when I met him, he has sought to make it even better. I know he loves this community and will give his best to it. He is principled, and brings integrity into his beliefs and actions, uncommon traits in those running for office these days.
In my mind, he will be a difference-maker, he will be a person we can trust to tirelessly work for our best interests as a community. In short, I do not believe there is a better, more capable candidate for City Council than Dick White.
