Support Peter Morton for Langley City Council, Position 5

Editor,

We are writing in support of Peter Morton for Langley Council, Position 5. Peter offers an unusual combination of experience, skill, and civic motivation, a combination the voters of Langley can enthusiastically vote for.

Peter is a former vice president of human resources for Boeing. He put the leadership training and experience he gained at Boeing to good use as a founding member of the leadership program offered at Seattle University. He was a Seattle University alumnus of the year recipient as well.

Peter sees the role of council person as more actively leading with an eye to better representing the citizens by working to improve the services the city offers to them. He sees himself in the role of spokesperson for citizens.

Peter paid a larger than expected hookup fee when connecting his home to Langley’s sewer system. You can be assured that he will put his engineering skills into taking a close look at Langley’s utility operations to see if costs can be lowered. He will, however, do that with a fair and realistic view of how the plant operates and how much it costs to run it. He has already taken a tour of the plant and has been looking at the plant engineering report.

Peter’s service extends to mentoring young people in aviation programs and previously sitting on the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts’ (WICA) board. You can hear him play the piano in the foyer at some of WICA’s events.

We’re pleasantly impressed with the fact that Peter made “civility, integrity, and respect” themes in his campaign. He has signed a nationally sponsored civility pledge, and our experience watching him listen to and converse with people has convinced us he will admirably fulfill the pledge.

Please join us in voting for Peter Morton in the November election.

FRAN ABEL and ED ANDERSON
