Letters to the editor: Political endorsements
Updated: Oct 4, 2022
The Morgan Hills Times recently received some letters endorsing Larry Carr for Mayor:
I’m endorsing the most qualified Morgan Hill Mayoral candidate, Larry Carr.
I have lived in Morgan Hill for 32 years as a manager with Anritsu, small business owner, Kiwanian, Chamber of Commerce Board Chair, Leadership Morgan Hill graduate and currently as the Board Chair for the Morgan Hill Wine Shop & Cigar Lounge.
I’ve watched Larry help lead the city council make decisions which off-set the loss of the RDA, overcame a financial crisis, and lead the city to becoming the best cities in Santa Clara County in which to live.
His strongest attribute is as a listener and communicator. If you’ve ever attended a city council meeting, you will note he is the last councilperson to speak, having gathered all the information he needs to make a well-considered contribution. Having observed him for the past 14 years, I have found him to have the highest possible interest in the well-being of Morgan Hill. He will be an excellent mayor. While we have differed from time to time on a few things, I know his primary interest lies in what will be best for us.
His leadership skills and awareness of the special challenges required to lead a city as it grows in these ever-changing times makes him the best candidate for mayor by far. He embodies the skills and quality of our former Mayor Steve Tate.
I encourage you to vote for Larry Carr for Mayor of Morgan Hill.
Jeff Burrus Morgan Hill
