Supports Mutchler for arts support

I have known Jon Mutchler for most of seven years that I have lived in Ferndale, relating to him in a variety of ways throughout that time, including as one of his adult piano students, cycling together in the surrounding countryside and discussing faith and politics over coffee.

I have found Jon to be an honest, thoughtful man of intelligence and integrity that seeks to do his best to genuinely hear and understand others. I appreciate his energy, humor, multifaceted life and care for his community. He also often asked about my involvement on the Ferndale Arts Commission during my term.

I have known Jon to be an excellent professional concert pianist at the Semiahmoo Resort as well as volunteering as a piano player at Louisa Place and for other community functions. Jon also supports the Arts through Ferndale Dance and has been a regular promoter of the Ten Thousand Villages Craft Sale held each Fall at Good News Fellowship Church. Jon is also well respected as a member of the Ferndale City Council, serving on planning and land use; finance and administration committees.

A thoughtful and sincere man of action, Jon has my vote as our next Ferndale Mayor.
