This letter is in support of Beatriz Botello Salgado for a position on the Newport City Council. We have known Beatriz for many years and recognize her as a woman of high intelligence and enormous integrity, with a deep commitment to her community.
She has always dedicated herself to helping others and to understanding what is needed to improve the quality of life. She is very diligent in studying issues and looking for solutions and compromises. She not only is a good problem-solver, but she also is able to consider various points of view when making decisions.
She is the mother of three bright and successful daughters. She has a generous heart and an ability to get along with others. She is a leader and a dedicated citizen of Newport. She has done an exceptional job serving on the city council for the past 21 months after being appointed to an open position.
