Stabosz is committed to La Porte

Over the past few weeks, I have listened to the candidates for Mayor and have evaluated their prospective agendas prior to the upcoming primary and election.

I respect Timothy Stabosz’s long-standing commitment to the City of La Porte as a City Councilman. He is honest and provides keen insights into our community's strengths and weaknesses. He has a willingness to examine the issues and listen closely to the public's questions and concerns.

His vision for the future of La Porte is progressive and positive. His tenure as Councilman and expertise in the area of finance make him a well qualified candidate for this office.

With all this in mind, I am supporting his candidacy and hoping for his success on election day.
