Peterson best choice for City Council seat | Letters


Sandi Peterson has been a friend of my family’s since 2001 when we first moved to Oak Harbor. I was stationed at CVWP with her husband, Brian Peterson, while I was still on active duty.

In 2008, we became closer friends when I became sick and I had few available to help me. Sandi has always been there for my family and myself whenever we needed her without question.

This same determination to help when needed is something I totally see her bringing to our community at a time when we need healing.

There has been so much turmoil over the years that I was thrilled when Sandi told me she was running for Oak Harbor City Council.

As my children grew into productive adults, as well as voters, they have always gone to Sandi for clarification of something on the ballot that was not clear. The best thing about Sandi is she researches the subject matter, becoming an expert on both sides. She does not pick one side over the other because of her political views. She keeps a level head and an open mind.

My children always felt better educated on the issue at hand after talking with Sandi.

I have heard a few rumors that people feel she is mean or even unapproachable. This is far from the truth. She has always been willing to help those who truly need a hand as well as gone out of her way to provide assistance to those who have problems in their lives.

When life has handed me more than I thought I could handle, I always had Sandi there to help me calm down and see things with a clear head.

On Election Day, please support my dear friend. I do not think we could get better representation.
