Supports Mutchler for service, care

I believe Jon Mutcher, a candidate for the mayor of Ferndale, is dependably dependable. I speak from experience. My husband Boone, who is a math teacher at Ferndale High, and I have known Jon for 32 years. I believe the enthusiastic, service-oriented Jon Mutchler that we knew back in college at WWU, and whom Boone drove tour buses with during Alaska summers, will make an excellent mayor of Ferndale.

Jon volunteers personally and tirelessly in our community. When we were building our home nine years ago, Jon would stop by while he was out cycling and ask if he could help pound nails for an afternoon. When several of our children were Jon’s piano students a few years later, Jon graciously offered one of our children a whole year of free lessons. Jon’s service, leadership and caring nature are the trademarks of who he is.

Jon has lived in this community for three decades and knows the heartbeat of its citizens. Whether through the terms he served as a Ferndale City Counsil member, the hours he volunteered building with the Whatcom-Skagit Housing, or by just grabbing a rake and shovel and helping with a Saturday community clean up, Jon has faithfully led through service and caring.

Our vote is Jon Mutchler for mayor, because we believe he is deeply invested in our community and will lead with vision and integrity.
