Former mayor supports Desi Nicodemus for Milwaukie
We citizens in Milwaukie are fortunate to have a neighbor like Desi Nicodemus living in our community, and now running for a City Council position.
Desi is a big man, not only in stature and smile, but also in knowledge, experience and heart. He is a husband and father, and Desi also is a mentor to his students at Lot Whitcomb School here in Milwaukie.
He inspired and encouraged his students to put on the event at our Riverfront Bay Park this summer celebrating Black Lives Matter. It was incredibly touching to see these young people reading their own poetry to Milwaukie citizens, urging us to take responsibility to make sure our community is fair to ALL.
Desi may be new to politics, but he is intelligent, sincere and honest. He won't make promises he can't keep, but he will work hard to understand our issues and how to effectively represent us.
He is a collaborator. I have found in politics that you don't achieve anything by yourself. You have to know how to work authentically and honestly with others. This is the man I trust to do that on our City Council.
Please vote for Desi Nicodemis for Milwaukie City Council.
