Morton’s skills, personality make him right for city council

Editor,

I appreciated the privilege of being mayor of the City of Langley from 2013 to 2015 and working with all the people of the city to improve the quality of life here.

I am encouraging people to vote for Peter Morton for city council. He brings an extraordinary business and human resources skills set. He is humble, sincere, a great listener and a courageous decision maker. He is a passionate spokesperson for the organizations he supports, like the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA) and Mother Mentors. He is a dedicated volunteer and has walked the talk by organizing world class piano performances in the city and playing the piano himself in support of WICA events.

I encourage citizens to talk to Peter, hear his ideas, and consider the opportunity his candidacy presents to continue to build the highest quality of city council leadership for the future of the City of Langley.

Respectfully,

FRED MCCARTHY

Langley
