Letter: Whitmarsh deserves support for council

To the editor:

I am writing to endorse Bob Whitmarsh as candidate for Gloucester city councilor at large.

Ironically, although I met him first in politics, I most admire him as a kind, competent and compassionate man who not only listens to all sides, but is adept at finding win-win solutions.

Bob Whitmarsh has been called a diplomat and a statesman by those who have worked with him. I know he’s prepared himself to serve as city councilor, as much as he has campaigned for the role. He is a man of honor, integrity and great energy.

I am usually not interested in politics, but I do my civic duty and vote. I’ve never written to endorse any candidate in my 30 years of voting.

It is obvious that I am voting for Bob Whitmarsh this election and I encourage others to learn about and meet him; if they do, I am confident that they will come to the same conclusions that I have.
