Judson Brown: Moulton is what Ward 1 needs

Published: 10/13/2021 2:28:06 PM

I am writing to urge you to support for Stan Moulton in the race for Ward 1 city councilor.

Stan served in multiple editorial capacities for the Gazette over a sterling career of more than four decades. As a longtime reporter at the Gazette, I can attest to his work ethic. He was there at the morning huddle, and always seemed to be the last one there in the middle of the night when you filed that late night story.

Passion in this business is quintessentially expressed dispassionately. Poker faced Stan Moulton was a passionate, consummate newsman. And I venture to say that the virtues of the professional newsman, the knight of the Fourth Estate, are the virtues we need now more than ever in a politician — inquisitiveness, objectivity and passion for the truth.

Stan will tell you that he subscribes to a “progressive” political viewpoint. But the viewpoint seems almost not to matter in his case. He is committed to a fair, balanced and thorough process of decision making.

Please vote for Stan Moulton for Ward 1 councilor.

Judson Brown
