This letter is to express my support for Don Parsons for Position No. 5, Ilwaco City Council.
Over the past two years I've had the pleasure of serving with Mr. Parsons on the Ilwaco Planning Commission. Some of you may know Don as an insurance agent and small business owner. During my association with Mr. Parsons he has been an important voice on the Ilwaco Planning Commission. Not only has Don Parsons shown incredible patience during many long meetings, he has been integral in an ongoing effort to develop a practical solution to replacing dangerous segments of the city's sidewalks in a fair way that doesn't penalize individuals. Don has a rare combination of talents including keeping an eye for detail without losing sight of the larger picture.
But I believe it is what Don does not have that makes him such a strong candidate. Don Parsons does not have a political ideology through which he filters all issues. Don does not have preconceptions that determine issues prior to hearing the facts but does go into every new issue with an open mind. And I am sure as the rain in November that Don Parsons will not sit on his hands between elections and glad- hand the community once every four years to get your vote.
I support Don unequivocally and hope that you seriously consider him for Position 5, Ilwaco City Council.
Chairman Ilwaco Planning Commission
