Doerr walks--only to ribbon cuttings. Goddard walks--the extra mile to reach workable solutions.
Doerr offers another four years of do-nothing politics. Goddard offers a choice: foresight and community.
Doerr smiles but her mind stays rigid. Goddard smiles and means it.
Doerr has been mayor for four years and hasn't learned the job. Goddard has been a successful councilman for two terms and has wide community support for the mayor's position (for example, groups of police, women, lifeguards and teachers all support Jerry Goddard).
