Here is a partial list of some of the citizens who have endorsed and/or financially supported Jon to become Ferndale’s next mayor. I am proud of their friendship and support. And they all, each of them, know that an endorsement with me does not in any way imply special or preferential treatment from me or city staff. I have made it clear to each that an endorsement means that they (1) like what I’ve done in the past and (2) trust that I will do the right thing for Ferndale in the future, and (3) I will be a careful listener and consider “all sides” of the issue at hand.
