Says Mutchler serves with integrity

My vote is for Jon Mutchler!

Having known Jon for almost five years as a friend, athlete, pastor and Ferndale City Council member, I find Jon’s professional, intelligent, respectful and positive character exemplified in numerous public settings.

As a Ferndale planning commissioner, I have made recommendations to City Council and have interacted with Jon on myriad topics with our citizens and business owners in Ferndale. I believe Jon has superlative knowledge of Ferndale’s budgets, geography, demographics, infrastructure, services, zoning regulations and building codes and is keenly interested in understanding each viewpoint and works to achieve the desired results with kindness and understanding.

I believe Jon is easily the best-qualified mayoral candidate. Not once have I heard him make disparaging comments about anyone, even though support for the opposition has not been as valorous by trying to paint him as being backed by “big developers.” Ferndale has local business owners, builders, retailers, restaurants, service providers and manufacturers, each of whom is interested in helping our fine city create jobs to grow and prosper.

If you want a mayor to hear your concerns and help our city with managed and responsible growth while serving our community with honesty and integrity, I believe you should vote for Jon. He has my full support.
