I am writing to explain why our household is voting to re-elect Dean Sawyer as Mayor of Newport. It is an understatement that 2020 has been a crazy year. Despite that craziness, Dean has been the right person at the helm as we continue to navigate this year. He has been an avid, transparent communicator through social media for the things our community needs to do. But there’s more.
He has posted hilarious things on Facebook when what we needed most was a good laugh. He has been as instantaneous as possible in relaying information from the Governor and the Lincoln County Health Department.
He has shown us this year that local government is more than just pushing programs and pointing to years of experience. He has put a kind, compassionate face on the Mayor’s office, something that we’ve needed desperately this year. He knows our community, and he has invited us to get to know him better, too. He is the face of Newport, for which I’m very grateful. And my wife thinks he’s adorable.
That’s why our household is voting to re-elect Dean Sawyer as Mayor of Newport.
