Retain Donlin on City Council

I would like to voice my support to reelect Clancy Donlin to the Port Orchard City Council.

As a personal friend, I have seen first-hand Clancy’s genuine desire, enthusiasm and commitment in helping to better the city of Port Orchard and its community.

Besides working with other City Council members on important issues to improve the city’s infrastructure, such as the Tremont widening project, Clancy voted in favor of streamlining and reorganizing the city’s municipal building code, as well as changing the entire structure of the city’s government for the benefit of all.

He has served effectively on both the Economic Development and Tourism and the Chimes and Lights committees. Clancy has given his personal commitment, presence and hands-on assistance at several local community events. Those events included the citywide clean-up project sponsored by the Church of Latter-Day Saints in May (which included weeding and beautifying City Hall’s landscape), volunteering his time and resources preparing meals for the homeless and for city employees at their annual picnic, as well as appearing at and supporting local business and community fundraisers. His efforts prove that he is a committed team player with a drive and desire to help make Port Orchard a better place for all its residents.

His leadership experience, accessibility and dedication to the community are positive and valuable assets to Port Orchard. Let’s keep Clancy Donlin on Port Orchard’s City Council by voting for him on Nov. 7!
