Please vote for Peter Morton, Christy Korrow and Dominique Emerson

Editor,

I have had the pleasure of involvement in Langley nonprofits and government since returning to my beloved hometown from college years ago. In those years of service, I have encountered many compelling and capable people, but none more qualified to guide Langley into the future than Peter Morton.

While I continued to serve in nonprofits throughout my time in Langley, I withdrew from involvement in politics due the stress that the many contentious issue debates brought. Although I thought I had sworn off that area of life, Peter Morton’s candidacy reminded me of why I had become politically active in the first place, and I found myself leaping to chair his campaign committee. In Peter, we have a candidate who has both the technical and interpersonal skills to ensure no opportunity is missed and no challenge is unmet. I have served with him on the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts’ board of directors, and worked with him in mentoring youth in aviation. Peter is steadfast, capable and passionate, with a relentless curiosity that guarantees all possible solutions are explored.

Langley has consistently had quality leadership, but this election offers us a chance to select a group of true leaders, a council that will not only be the stewards of our public funds and infrastructure, but help us find the highest and best use for all of our shared resources. Please vote for Peter Morton, Christy Korrow and Dominique Emerson for Langley City Council.
