Letter: Well-behaved women seldom make history

Oct 25, 2017

I met Jennifer Gregerson several years ago when I opposed her in a run for city council.  I was a one-issue candidate and my opponent and now friend helped me understand the many other issues that faced the city we both love.  During the campaign, who does that?

As our mayor, Jennifer has accomplished much.  I was part of a citizens group (representing the community garden) involving the public input in deciding how to best use the Japanese Gulch.

She also created an Advisory Board to increase community participation at Rosehill.  She recently established a committee to find ways to bring our diverse community closer.  She asks for ideas and listens to our community.

She has reached out repeatedly to our Senior Association to help us find a home.  She has always encouraged and supported our use of rooms at Rosehill for no charge.

Jennifer showed such maturity and grace when tragedy struck our community last summer.  She proved herself a compassionate leader.  She is the one who suggested a permanent memorial and again asked the public for their thoughts.

She is an exceptional leader, inclusive, compassionate, brilliant and deserving to be our mayor again!

Ethical people, doing the right thing, make long lasting history ....making history (can be good or bad)....is not really making positive history, unless it's good.
