Joe Lupo’s letter of support for Maralise Fegan for Ferndale City Council Position 7 deserves a second, which I wish to provide. I’ve been a resident of Ferndale for more than a decade now and have been pretty active in the community as a volunteer for much of that time. I first met Maralise and Brandon as fellow Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers which led them to get their Amateur Radio Licenses so they could join the Ferndale Police Department’s Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS).
The Ferndale Emergency Resource Network (FERN) was an outgrowth of meetings between Ferndale CERT & ACS volunteers, Cathy Watson, past city council person, and others. Maralise was a big contributor in those meetings. Joe has given a wonderful summary of Maralise’s skill set. She is an extraordinarily clear thinker and communicator. Inquisitive, thoughtful, and committed, Maralise would make an exceptional city council person.
Maralise’s commitment to the community is evident in her volunteerism. I’ve no doubt that her contributions to the Ferndale School District’s Bond effort were significant as noted by Joe Lupo. I’ve seen Maralise in action and have been impressed on multiple occasions.
Maralise is energetic, intelligent, inquisitive, and ethical. Fair minded, she really listens when you talk to her. She won’t put hidden agendas before the well being of the community. She will be an outstanding city council person. Vote for Maralise Fegan for Ferndale City Council Position 7.
