I would like to ask your consideration and support for a very diligent, honest and thoughtful public servant who is running for re-election this November.

Kerry Smith has served Gearhart well through a very decisive and important couple of years as we tackled short-term rentals. He proved himself a leader in addressing the situation with a cool head and understanding for both sides. He was for upholding the regulation without rancor. We need people on the council who work to bring Gearhart together, not seek divisiveness.
