Letter to the editor: Make election about people, not agendas
There are some great candidates out there, and we should keep what we care about — essentially Gresham — in mind when voting this November.
I was so glad when I learned awhile back that Travis Stovall put his hat in the ring for Gresham mayor; Sue Piazza for City Council along with Ray Love, also for City Council, and of course our current Councilor Jerry Hinton, continuing the great work he has done.
The word stellar comes to mind in defining these candidates, ones that care about our common goal, which is Gresham, and have roots here.
Let's keep this about people, not party politics or outside money pushing their agendas. We don't need puppets, but people who really care for the positions they will take on.
