Letter writers express their support for the re-election of Gervais Mayor Annie Gilland

Re-Elect Mayor Annie Gilland in Gervais.

She has been a great leader for our small community. We need a person as mayor who will not back down.

I have lived in Gervais most of my life, almost 60 years. I love the small, cozy, mostly friendly feel of this city and hope it can stay this way even as we add many new homes to our city. I believe that is why so many are moving here.

The first time I noticed the negative people in our city was during the freeze. That was a hard time for many. Annie was doing her best checking on people, making sure we were taken care of and the hate on Facebook that came to her was unbelievable. As I said we were all in the same boat trying to figure out how to stay warm, keep our fridge and freezers going etc. Annie did all she could as mayor for Gervais.

I have not been able to attend city council meetings but have listened a few times. I've heard how disrespectful people are. I've heard complaints about Annie's church, about her faith, about her commitment to her family and on and on. Annie tries to keep the meetings running smoothly as best she can.

We need to have a mayor and city council members who will not be afraid to stand up when things are not going right in our city. I have total faith and trust in Annie Gilland.

Vote Annie Gilland for mayor and Michael Gregory and John Harvey for Gervais City Council.

Dear Woodburn Independent Editor:

Gervais Mayor Annie helped us as a family. She helped us with the winter storm. She came and brought us some blankets, medicine, food for our family. When my mother passed away, she helped us to get a GoFundMe page to help us with my mother's funeral expenses. When my father got sick, she came and helped us to build a ramp for my father so he could get around. She is a good mayor, and she's been good to us personally. She helps with everybody in Gervais.

Vote for Annie Gilland as Gervais Mayor.

Thank you.

Jasmine Martinez on behalf of the Lopez family
