To the editor:
I have known Richard Leon since 2011. I started going to City Council meetings and he was always there. We talked and became close. Leon and I have fundamental disagreements on the issues, this is true.
But what is different than most is Leon's civility and willingness to listen. He is much more informed than most people. If you disagree with Leon, he won't shun you. He won't insult you, or attack you. He will listen, and comment when necessary, and try to understand your position, as opposed to push his on you.
Leon has another thing going for him, his youth. I'm a young guy, so one of my main issues is trying to find someone who will look out for my demographic. There's not a lot to do for us "Young'ens," and he knows this. I feel he will try to remove the "Cape Coma" stigma here.
So I hereby endorse Richard Leon For City Council, District 4.
