Joe Stapleton is what it means to be a “citizen.” He is an earnest volunteer, a servant, a dedicated leader, and someone I first served with on the charter commission many years ago.
We have stayed in close touch over the years and I know him to be a selfless and intelligent professional. Our city would be blessed to have him on the council.
I can’t say anything negative about his opponent, Tom Miller, because I have never met him, seen him at a city event, served with him, or observed him in any capacity as part of city or community life.
Newport Beach will be well-served by its fellow citizen, Joe Stapleton.
