WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT JACK

"We need Jack's strength and integrity. He has brought common sense and thoughtful and open dialogue to City Council discussion during his tenure as a Council member."  -- Peggy Rabhi

"In addition to being thoughtful on issues before Council, Jack Eaton conducts this role with grace and dignity. He is respectful and kind even when he disagrees with a colleague or a constituent on an issue. That is the temperament we would like to see in our Mayor."  -- Vivienne Armentrout

"Jack's courage, strength of character and intellect, and willingness to stand up and protect the interests of the people is a recurring theme.  -- Anne Bannister, City Council member, Ward 1

"Thorough, competent, clear, open, forthright, of high integrity and having a passion to do what's best for Ann Arbor residents describe Jack. Added to these traits is one more rare--leadership ability."  -- Ed Steinman

"Left unaddressed, increasing human-induced climate change risks – droughts, deluges/rain-bombs, heat/cold extremes, toxic releases and related social unrest – will consume our community. Serving as the City Council representative to the Ann Arbor Energy Commission, Jack Eaton is well versed in climate change, sustainability, energy and environmental issues that face our community. He has been endorsed for City Council by the Sierra Club, Huron Valley Chapter and is one of a handful of local policymakers that understands the issue of solar taxation and local government. The time for platitudes, dynamic inaction and soft climate denialism is well past. We need strong leadership on these and related issues now. It is for these reasons that I endorse Jack Eaton for Mayor of the City of Ann Arbor."  --Mark Clevey, Vice-Chair, Ann Arbor Energy Commission; Founder/Organizer, Ann Arbor Solar Users Network

"I've always admired Jack's common-sense approach to city government." --Peter Eckstein

"Jack Eaton's voting record shows that he is already providing city-wide leadership on basic City issues, such as how our tax money is spent and how our public land is developed. He leads in representing what we, in Ann Arbor, want for our city."  -- Ethel Potts, former Planning Commission member

"Jack Eaton gets 5 stars as a council member for: being exceptionally well informed on issues and items coming before city council, hard working, involved, communicating with constituents, respectful, fair, highly ethical and excellent ability to address issues publicly. I could go on. As mayor I would expect the same. I stand behind him 100%. Ann Arbor needs Jack Eaton as mayor." --Mary Underwood, small business owner

"Jack will be a more rational mayor who will listen to the public ." --James Walker
