Kimberly Steele wrote a letter of support published in the West Linn Tidings on May 14, 2015:
My family will benefit from a mayor who works well with others. Professionals both in and outside of West Linn have endorsed Thomas Frank for mayor. They want to work with Thomas Frank! The professional endorsements are overwhelmingly in favor of Thomas Frank: TVFR, Local Labor Unions and Clackamas County officials, just to name a few from a very impressive list. As mayor, Thomas will begin immediately to capitalize on the positive relationship and trust he has already established which will benefit the citizens of West Linn.
We would be foolish not to select a mayor who has this level of respect and support from organizations that greatly influence our community. If you are wondering who to vote for, let me encourage you to compare the endorsements each candidate has received. There is no contest — Thomas Frank is the area’s preference for West Linn mayor. He works well with others and will be an advocate and ambassador for West Linn families.
