To the editor:

It is our pleasure to support Luke Spence for Nevada City Council Ward 2. We have known Luke since he and his wife, Stephanie, moved to Nevada. Luke has high integrity, he is a thoughtful and attentive listener, and he cares about the success of Nevada.

As parents with school-age children, it is important to us to have a candidate who is forward thinking and in support of building Nevada for the future. Luke has come out in support for the community center, an issue that is important to both of us and many other fellow Nevadans. Luke has a commitment to public safety, increased parks and recreational programs, and economic development within our city.

We believe that Luke has an excellent background to contribute in serving on the Nevada City Council. His leadership and thoughtfulness will be evident in working with other council members and in applying decision-making for Nevada. We especially appreciate that he came to our house, knocked on our door and engaged both of us in discussion about our wants and needs for our community.

We would like to encourage our friends and neighbors to vote for Luke Spence for Nevada City Council Ward 2.

Matt and Dani Dunham
