Oregon City voter: Connection to past, present and future needed
You may have not voted yet. You may be struggling with that decision and what is best for the city we all love. I love our unique and historic community too and know that to truly go forward to the future, we must understand and embrace the past and present. That is why I support Rocky Smith.
Rocky Smith has his finger on the pulse of everything Oregon City. He is not only deeply rooted in the community as a longtime resident who grew up here, but he is also part of its present and future by teaching our youth as a high school teacher and by being a business owner.
As our city continues to grow in population size and popularity, business diversity and as a tourist destination, we need somebody on the commission that can see from different vantage points and make words become action. I have also been impressed many times with his ability to get things done and keep pushing to the other side regardless of roadblocks in the way. He's not adverse to speaking his mind and putting people before policies. That is hard to find in these current times and something we can all take a lesson from.
I'll sing it from the mountaintops! Please join me in reelecting Rocky Smith to the city commission.
