In the November election, voters have a choice between long time community leader Joe Stapleton and newcomer to Newport Beach Tom Miller.
I am supporting Joe Stapleton. Joe has decades of experience in working to improve our city.
As a member of the Finance Committee his oversight has contributed to our highest in the nation bond ratings and strong fiscal position. He is ready on day one to lead on financial issues.
As a past Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, he understands what it takes to promote local business and he will protect our strong underlying tax base.
Joe is committed to protecting our high quality of life. He has the experience to lead on reducing airport noise, getting homeless off the streets and reducing crime that is rising around us.
That is why Newport Beach Police Officers’ Association and Newport Beach Firefighters’ Association support Joe Stapleton.
Most importantly, Joe is an independent leader, not part of a block or team. That is why a diverse group of former mayors, who often disagree among themselves on policy, all agree that Joe Stapleton is the right choice.
Leaders like Will O’Neill, Rush Hill, Tom Edwards, Keith Curry, Mike Henn, Duffy Duffield, Brad Avery, Don Webb, Bus Turner, and current mayor Kevin Muldoon all urge you to vote for Joe Stapleton.
Joe Stapleton is the best choice for Newport’s future.
