Michael Bays wrote a letter of support published in the West Linn Tidings on April 9, 2015:
Soon we will elect the next mayor of West Linn. Please take time to thoroughly investigate the background and experience of the two candidates. There are important differences in the two men. Because of these differences, I am working to elect Thomas Frank. Thomas is a fellow member of the West Linn Rotary Club. As a Rotarian, Thomas examines issues using Rotary’s 4-Way test: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Is it beneficial to all concerned? Decisions made applying these four questions serve the community as a whole.
Our leaders must make decisions which will determine our future for decades to come. We have a once in a life-time opportunity to reclaim one of our nation’s natural wonders, Willamette Falls. In this we must not fail. Dealing with future growth, we must have visionary leadership for our community planning roads, schools, housing, water, services essential to keeping our community strong.
Thomas Frank will represent the interests of all of us and do so with honor, statesmanship and respect. Let’s get Thomas Frank for mayor.
