It is an honor for us to come out in full-throated support of Kerry Smith for re-election to the Gearhart City Council, Position 1.
Over these past four years, Kerry has given thoughtful consideration and deliberation to the pressing issues our city has faced. In fact, existential issues that rocked the very foundation of keeping Gearhart as it was intended to be at its 1918 incorporation — a primarily residential community. In this regard, he was a huge part of creating the short-term rental regulations, helping to carry Gearhart’s primarily residential community legacy forward.
He worked tirelessly to resolve the dune vegetation issue that so weighed the city down in the last few years.
Kerry believes in compromise and listening to the voices of his constituents.
He has an impressive voting record and a record of working well with the council.
Having lived in Gearhart for over 33 years, Kerry has a thorough understanding of our comprehensive plan. He realizes just what that means to the integrity and livability of Gearhart. He lives by this plan, and by the city ordinances.
He believes in transparency, and making sure his constituents are well-informed on all issues at hand, including the budget.
He is not afraid to stand his ground in support of the comprehensive plan and the best interests of Gearhart.
Please join us in re-electing Kerry Smith.
Jeanne and Wilson Mark
