Four years ago Ferndale voters wisely gave their nod to Brent Goodrich to serve on city council. I believe his hard work, commitment to Ferndale values, and thoughtful perspectives commend him to a second term.
His experiences on the planning commission and Economic Development Council and consistent record of working toward lower taxes and fees show his concern for economic growth and sensitivity toward struggling families and small businesses.
I have watched Brent for four years and can testify that he studies well, thinks through the complexity of important issues, and votes to put citizens first. He asks tough and probing questions that help lead city hall toward better choices.
He also conveys the respect and courtesy citizens deserve, even with those who disagree with him. Ferndale is a better city because of his service. I urge Ferndale to return Brent for a second term.
