Dear Gearhart Voters,

You are the lucky ones! Your vote counts!!

I have owned a home in Gearhart for close to 25 years but because I vote in Minnesota, sadly, I will not get the chance to vote for Kerry Smith for another term on our City Council. I spend long stretches of time in Gearhart and like to attend the city council meetings. Often these meetings get heated, full of divergent, passionate opinions. Democracy in action, at its best.

Kerry Smith is as fair minded and smart as anyone I’ve known. As a council member he asks important questions that have been critical to understanding the many difficult issue facing a small town. In his first term it has been clear he’s a listener, always open to hearing divergent opinions on an issue. At the meetings his thoughts show he’s done his research. He digs down deep to get the full story without prejudgment. And, after weighing the ins and outs of an issue, Kerry can be depended upon to be a voice and a vote for the community good.

We need Kerry on the Gearhart council. Thank you,

Vickie Abrahamson
