Letter to the Editor: Dietmar Goebel for Newport Mayor by Don André
Previous letters have underscored the important skill sets Dietmar Goebel possesses; a successful local business owner, a long time community member, served on the boards of public organizations, an understanding of the construction trades and how to get things done.
I would like to add yet another reason to vote for Dietmar. He understands that our community needs to plan for the future. We need leadership to make sure Newport assesses and understands that the health and well being of our town is dependant on our green-spaces. Dietmar understands that a safe water supply is essential to our long term independence and self sufficiency as a community. We need Dietmar who will be a mayor who can help our community plan for our future where we strategically increase local control over and secure decision making authority related to our own drinking water.
