Wright is the obvious choice | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

I must respond to a series of comments and letters regarding the current appointed mayor of Marysville and his challenger, Kelly Wright.

I must respond to a series of comments and letters regarding the current appointed mayor of Marysville and his challenger, Kelly Wright.

The appointed mayor enjoys financial support from a number of individuals who have business interests before the city. One of his contributions even came immediately before the contributor was appointed to the Planning Commission. That’s not how I want city business done.

Kelly Wright’s support comes from those who know him not only in Marysville but also those who have worked with his in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen, Those individuals have no reason to support Wright other than their high respect for his character and leadership.

A simple glance at the appointed mayor’s endorsements shows Kelly Wright is not supported by political insiders. If you are looking for an establishment politician who will keep the status quo, then by all means vote for the appointed incumbent. If you are looking for change, someone who will conduct city business in an open, transparent manner, someone who will bring a new approach and fresh perspective, someone who is respected for his work around the world, then please vote for Kelly Wright.

To me the choice is obvious.
