Widow of late councilman writes to support Wright for Mayor

Dear Editor:

My husband, Gary Agopian, proudly served on the Antioch City Council until he passed away in 2014 after a long battle with brain cancer. I don’t usually get involved in politics, as that was always Gary’s passion. But this election is different. The decision we make on November 8th to elect a new mayor for Antioch will define the future of our city for years to come.

I am writing you to ask you to join me in voting for Dr. Sean Wright for Mayor.

Sean Wright has three qualities I strongly value in a leader, and I know my late husband, Gary, would have agreed with me: character to do the right thing; a desire to be transparent with citizens on all decisions made; and the courage to stand up and make the tough decisions that will move Antioch forward in a positive fashion.

Antioch is short on the kind of leadership our community needs to turn our city around. Sean Wright will be a mayor we can count on – he will stand up on the important issues that matter. Thank you for reading this letter.

Robin Agopian

Antioch resident and local teacher

    Great article. I already submitted my vote for Sean Wright

  2. Dave Roberts says:

    If Sean Wright is even half the man Gary Agopian was, he’ll do a great job as mayor.

    Mrs Agopian:

    I held your husband in the highest regards, not just politically but personally. I know that you and your family miss him terribly, but his passing away left a great big hole in Antioch as well. Your recommendation of Dr. Sean Wright is highly valued and appreciated. Dr. Wright will get my vote, and most likely (secret ballot!) my wife’s vote as well.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this letter.
