This letter is written in support for Marysville’s current Mayor Jon Nehring.
I have known Jon and his family for many years, we have worked in the community together, our children go to school together and we have coached our boys in baseball together. In short, he is a man who not only works hard for the residents of the city of Marysville; he is an active resident of the city of Marysville. He knows what our children are facing in local schools; his children attend there. He understands the needs of hard-working families because he interacts with many of those parents on a personal level through the community each week.
I had the opportunity to work with Jon coaching a team for Marysville Little League. In that atmosphere we had the opportunity to work with other coaches, umpires, the league and many parents. Jon always exhibited talents of organization, tact, competitiveness, was always kind and knew how to handle every situation while carefully considering all parties concerned. These attributes are extremely important not only on the little league field but also in the field of government and the political process. It is the only way work gets done in that atmosphere.
I am a small-businessman in the city of Marysville. I have no reservations supporting Jon as our Mayor. He has shown us that he can make the difficult decisions when they need to be made. Making cuts, balancing budgets and providing a means for steady, sustainable growth for our city. I have resided in the city of Marysville for 27 years now. This town has grown up during those years and we have been fortunate so far to retain a sense of community. Jon has shown that he knows how to maintain that atmosphere where families want to live and businesses can grow — it can be done and Jon is the man to lead Marysville into the future.
