Thank you George for all that you have done for Lemon Grove School District and the city of Lemon Grove. George has served as a mentor for me as well as many other politicians in Lemon Grove and will make a great mayor.

I am so glad you are running for Mayor. You have the background and experience, both personal and political, to move Lemon Grove to the next level. Most of all, you have the heart to work as hard as you need to make the kind of difference Lemon Grove needs.

I have known you since you were in high school and you served on the Human Relations Committee of the Grossmont Union High School District. We did a lot of bridge building in those days. You have kept moving up to higher levels of leadership as time has passed. I am so proud of what you have accomplished and stand ready to help you get elected once again.

Thank you and your family for being willing to make the sacrifice to do this. I am sending a contribution, and I would also like up a sign for you in my yard.

Peace and Gratitude,

I have known George Gastil for well over 12 years. I have been most impressed by his integrity and his deep commitment to serving his community. George is one of the most selfless people I know and seems to spend all of his time trying to help others to succeed; as a teacher, as a former member of Lemon Grove’s school board, and now, as a City Council member.

I have no doubt that George will work tirelessly for our wonderful town of Lemon Grove. He will be smart, innovative, and inclusive. George will insist on transparency, and will be available to all residents, regardless of their background, politics or ideas. George is a true servant, and I am excited about the new direction George will lead Lemon Grove as Mayor if given the opportunity by the voters.

I urge you to support George for Mayor of Lemon Grove in 2016.
