I endorse La Grande City Council candidates Alex McHaddad for mayor, Denise Wheeler for Position No. 2, Dr. David Glabe for Position No. 3 and John Bozarth for Position No. 6. I believe this team of a special district executive director, musical theatre director, optometrist and former councilor bring energy necessary to renew La Grande. Their "Renew La Grande" platform emphasizing increasing city transparency, supporting instead of impeding businesses and plowing the roads more often during winter is beneficial not only for La Grande residents but all Union County residents who live and work in the hub of Northeast Oregon.

Our county seat should be safe for everyone who visits to do everything from shop and go to the bank to pay taxes and register to vote. I am proud to support these pragmatic problem solvers to lead La Grande into the future.
