Letter to the Editor

Saddened by two campaign shortfalls

To hear once again of all Jeff Herdman’s accomplishments as he served his community on Balboa Island specifically, and Newport Beach in general, saddens me that he will no longer be on City Council. He had a very long list of achievements in the four years that he served us in Newport and for all the right reasons – because he loves the city which has been his home for many years and wanted to give back. And he is one of the rare few who was not serving simply to promote his own career. 

I was disappointed as well that we did not elect Nancy Scarbrough as she is the same type of person, one who wants to be on Council to make Newport Beach a better place to live. Her list of interests in her neighborhood and the city in general is evidenced by her constant involvement, unparalleled by others, in various meetings and committees. She promises to be back to give us a second chance to gain her spirit and dedication on Newport Beach City Council.
