I strongly urge Portland voters to re-elect Gary Libby in his race against Nisha Swinton for a seat on the Portland Water District Board of trustees.
As a fellow trustee I have had the opportunity to work closely with Gary since my election in 2009. He is unquestionably one of our most valuable and dedicated trustees. His encyclopedic knowledge of all things PWD and ability to clearly define key issues cannot be replaced. He is not afraid to ask tough questions, and always seeks all sides of any issue.
I have never felt the need to endorse a candidate before, but Portland voters need to know that by re-electing Gary Libby they will continue to benefit from a true steward of clean water and a thoughtful, responsible advocate for ratepayers’ needs and wallets.
