My continued support for Beatriz Botello

I am writing to show my continued support for Beatriz Botello, who is running for city councilor in the upcoming election.

As a current Newport city councilor, Beatriz has reached out to many residents to hear their concerns. As a long-time advocate for the Latino community, she understands and assures the community that their voices are also heard.

I have known Beatriz for nearly 40 years and have found her to be a caring, compassionate and intelligent woman who is willing to listen to all sides of an issue.

Her tireless involvement in the community — through OSU Nutrition Program, Juntos (together), and Centro de Ayuda to name just a few — shows that she is a woman of service and integrity who truly wants the best for Newport residents.

I know she will continue to serve the council with the same passion she exhibits in all of her endeavors.
