Endorsements

From my 2015 re-election:

Endorsements are one gauge of a candidate’s viability. As you can see from the growing list below, I’ve been endorsed by civic leaders throughout the region, which shows that I work well with others and have professional relationships that benefit the city. I’m also excited to have the endorsement of many of your neighbors in the city. It would be an honor to add your name.
