To the Editor:

We would like to show our support for Matthew Chappell who is running for Council Seat Position 3.

We have known Matt for many years and have admired his honesty, thoughtfulness and compassionate nature.  Matt is now a current planning commissioner for Keizer and has a strong  interest in our city.  Matt thinks through his decisions, weighing their impact on our citizens. He supports a small government which is cost effective and is less burdensome on our taxpayers.  Matt knows how to work well with others and knows the importance of teamwork.

Matthew shows a deep sensitivity in his challenge at home as the caretaker of his father, Perry,  along with his mother who requires Matt’s help daily. During our coffee chats, I have heard his mother, Judy, say many times, “I don’t know what I would do without Matt.”

Please vote for Matthew Chappell. His independent thinking will be a great help and addition for our city council.

Judy and Lynn DeSpain
