Letter: Elect Piazza to Gresham City Council
I appreciate that The Outlook article on candidates for the City Council was clearly considered and thoroughly researched.
I value that a trusted local paper was able to give a review of many citizens who are willing to serve in these uncertain times.
In particular, Sue Piazza is a candidate with years of experience and compassion for the community. It's refreshing to see someone with her understanding and background, proving her capacity as a leader.
Everyone is aware that businesses and individuals have been struggling under the burdens of the pandemic, and Sue understands better than most what this means.
Her service on school boards and running businesses has given her the experience and expertise needed to see the community through to post-COVID goals by managing the tax system and creating jobs. In this critical time, with serious budget shortfalls, Sue has the knowledge to handle the city finances and I trust her track record to see us through.
With Sue serving the community I feel confident that her honesty and skill will protect the citizens. It gives me a feeling of security knowing that she is leading the community, especially as a woman.
Sue Piazza has my vote.
Crystal Baklanov, Gresham
