Letter to the editor: Support Dina DiNucci for Gresham council
As a former Gresham City Councilor, I have watched with growing concern the recent actions of some on our council.
I remain dedicated to the best interests of our residents.
New leadership and replacing outdated policies is important for Gresham's future. For that reason, I filed to run for City Council Position No. 1, in opposition to Jerry Hinton.
I am writing this letter to inform the Gresham community that I am withdrawing my candidacy in support of Dina DiNucci for Gresham City Council Position No. 1.
I have known of Dina's community work dating back to when I joined City Council 17 years ago. She knows Gresham well: as a former city employee, longtime volunteer, advocate and as small business owner in Rockwood for many years. I believe Dina is the right candidate.
Dina brings experience as a mom, business owner and an advocate of others through work in social services and government. Her tireless energy, her natural leadership and creativity is impressive.
The Position No. 1 incumbent, Jerry Hinton, has been in office eight years. It's time for a fresh approach and solutions. As a 32-year resident of Gresham, my choice for Gresham is Dina DiNucci for Position No. 1.
