Click here to read my interview with candidate DePinto.
Opponent Denise Butler did not respond to my request for an interview.
My reasons for endorsing DePinto 4 year ago still apply: “Joe DePinto is a leader with an impeccable record in his stands for transparency, open government, following proper procedures, and in expressing his deep respect and appreciation to all citizens who address the council.“
+ Why I endorse Jessie Simmons for Port of Olympia Commissioner District 2 – a clear vision for the Port’s future! Jessie has the hands-on experience to understand Port issues, rather than experience only as an administrator in an office setting:
“Jessie is an Army veteran who grew up in Fort Worth, Texas. He served in various locations around the world including stints in Iraq, Kuwait, South Korea, Hawaii, and Washington State. Jessie was officially a 63B (Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic) in the Army, but as many service members know your job title isn’t entirely descriptive of your experience. During his military service he served in many roles to include Environmental Compliance Officer, Recovery Driver, Command Driver, and Project Coordinator on a project to build a regional hazardous waste disposal facility in Iraq.”
