Rosapepe is a leader we need

I’ve lived in this community for most of my life and raised my two children here. I have always been proud of our community and consider it to be a great place to live. We are in the middle of a huge population growth and need someone with the vision to handle the issues before our city. Someone willing to look at all sides of the issues.

Jay Rosapepe is that person.

Jay has worked consistently in volunteer positions as a school board member, Life Line fundraiser, on the Jingle Bell Run, Rotary member and has been part of other community events. He will work tirelessly as a Port Orchard City Council member. Jay is the right choice and he has my vote.
