McBeth is knowledgeable, persistent, fair

The Virginia Gazette

Please vote for Elaine McBeth for Williamsburg City Council.

The enthusiasm for Elaine McBeth being a member of the City Council comes from first hand experience of knowing what she is capable of doing. During the years I worked with her on the Planning Commission, I found her to be knowledgeable, persistent in getting all the facts, fair in evaluating the facts, and able to take decisive action for the good of the City,

I could write a 17 page document on why Elaine McBeth would make a good City Council member, but I will just cover the highlights so you can judge for yourself.
