LETTER TO THE EDITOR
We have known Dean Sawyer since he came to Newport in 1977 to work for the Newport Police Department. He served Newport admirably for 30 years and now has volunteered his time for the past eight years on the City Council. Dean has shown time and time again that he can get people together and come to a group decision on items affecting this city. He has more experience on the city council than his opponent and has frequently stated specific goals to address if he becomes Mayor.
Dean Sawyer has never taken donations or endorsements in any of his campaigns the past eight years. He is not taking donations this time, funding his own campaign out of his own pocket.
Dean Sawyer cares about this city and everyone in it and wants to be accountable to everyone. His opponent is taking donations and funding expensive advertisements. According to the State of Oregon Secretary of State Elections Campaign filing website, his opponent has collected $7,000 (correction) to date in contributions with two contributions from out of state. This is for a volunteer position.
Dean cares about this town and wants to make Newport a better place to live and do business. Please read his Voter’s Pamphlet statement and you will see that he has specific strategies, objectives and solutions to do this.
Please join us in voting for a person that truly cares about Newport, Dean Sawyer for Mayor.
Retired Newport Asst. Finance Director
