    Ron & Samantha Ridout
    “Whittier is at a critical juncture, in that we have changed our form of governing the city. Looking at other cities that have adopted the districting system, many fall into the trap of each district being out for themselves, and the city as a whole is neglected. The only way to avoid this scenario is to have strong, decisive leadership from the mayor, who will be elected at large. Joe Vinatieri has shown during his tenure on the city council, that he is a leader, he is fair, smart, thoughtful and engaged in all aspects of the city. He is level headed and all of Whittier is a priority for him. Joe will set the tone as Whittier’s first elected mayor, for future city leaders. We are proud to support Joe and feel that now more than ever, Whittier needs Joe Vinatieri as mayor.” -Ron & Samantha Ridout
