Dear fellow citizens,

Thank you for your strong support in the Primary Election. Having
received nearly 42% of the votes in an unprecedented 6-way race,
I will now be in a run-off in the November 4 General Election with
1 opponent who received about 16% of the votes in the primary.

It has been an honor and pleasure to serve you as
Commissioner since November of 2010. My commitment to
you was that I would work hard to restore local government
to one that works for the people. Over the years, together
with your input and support, we have successfully
challenged the practice of business as usual in City
government and made many improvements.

I look forward to continuing my unwavering service as
the reliable voice in looking out for the public, always
researching issues and asking questions, keeping you
informed, boldly challenging the status quo, and
speaking up to protect taxpayers from untimely,
unwarranted or excessive costs. My emphasis on
efficiencies, reducing spending, keeping taxes low and
improving governing policies and practices has enabled
the city to weather the impacts of the recession.

Today, North Port is better positioned to succeed in this new economy. I remain passionate
in my advocacy for manageable growth, affordable living and pursuing opportunities that
bring jobs and improve the quality of life in our community, including:

* Developing a vocational training center (like SCTI)
* Enhancing the city's activity centers and creating a downtown center
* Ensuring fair and equal opportunity for all businesses
* Improving our canals for recreational uses
* Highlighting our many natural assets to attract tourism

Together, we can continue the positive momentum and I stand resolute in my dedication
to ensuring that City government operates with the highest level of integrity, clarity and
impartiality. I am asking for your Vote in the November 4 General Election and would
be grateful for your support and participation in my re-election campaign. I am always
accessible so please don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have questions. 
Linda Yates
