Letter: Collaborative and Consensus-Building

To the Editor:

We are writing to express our support for Mayor Bill Euille in the June 9 Democratic primary for mayor.

It has been a great pleasure and honor for us to serve with Mayor Euille. He is an inclusive leader with a great command of the issues facing our city. He works hard to keep Alexandria moving forward, but always through collaboration and consensus-building. He truly believes that working together works best.

The mayor’s opponents call for increased spending and lower taxes, but their numbers don’t seem to add up. Mayor Euille tries to find the right balance among competing needs in our city, including the need to restrain the city’s tax burden. He is a positive and responsible leader. And nobody cares more about Alexandria and its future than Bill Euille.

We strongly endorse Bill Euille for re-nomination and re-election as mayor of Alexandria.
