Summit Needs Problem Solvers – Vote Dietze, Dougherty, and Wattick


Please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to vote in the Tuesday June 6th Primary Election.

While each party’s respective local candidates stand unopposed in the Primary, it is critical to get engaged early so you can make the best decision for you, your family, and your broader community come November’s general election.

As a lifelong Summit resident, I enthusiastically support David Dietze for Councilman at Large, John Dougherty for Councilman Ward 1 and Mike Wattick for Councilman Ward 2.

David, John, and Mike will bring to Council deep knowledge and real-life experience with what’s on the top of every Summit resident’s mind: our wonderful downtown, education, public safety, and of course responsible spending.

David is a proven civic leader, downtown business owner, and has a unique blend of practical financial and legal expertise.  

John currently serves as Director of Security for a major regional hospital, has deep roots in the community, and experience in public safety.

Mike, former President of the Summit Taxpayers Association, is a downtown businessman who has a laser focus on state, county and local fiscal issues.  

All three are long time Summit residents, problem solvers. and tireless volunteers for numerous local organizations.

I am proud to support Dave, John and Mike and encourage you to show your support by getting out to vote on June 6th. When elected to Council in November, David, John, and Mike will do us proud.
