Letter: Gutshall has experience in Arlington planning process

Sun Gazette

Editor: Erik Gutshall has served since 2013 and currently chairs the Arlington Planning Commission, the primary voice of county residents on the complex growth and development issues key to Arlington’s livability, fiscal strength and environmental health.

We, the undersigned, are also all current or former members or chairs of the Planning Commission. We recognize Gutshall’s strong understanding of Arlington’s planning and development context, and greatly value the leadership he has shown, including as chair.

We endorse Erik Gutshall for County Board in the Democratic caucus in May, and ask that county residents give him their vote.
