Dear Wheeler Voters,

I am Mary Leverette and I am running Wheeler City Council.

It is unfortunate that unfounded rumor has found its way into this election. I would like to make a few points clear.

I am not, nor have I ever been, employed by, or a representative of, the Ulbricht family who own Botts Marsh, LLC.

I have no vested interest, nor do I stand to gain if this project moves forward or disappears.

I have met with Mr. Ulbricht on two occasions when I was seeking information on his plans for the development. I did this as an concerned citizen who wanted to separate fact from fiction.

I value open and honest communication and firmly believe that if sitting Council members would have sought out a solution that respects the interest of ALL Wheeler stakeholders, the city would not be facing a lawsuit now. As a City Councilor I will seek to hear from all of our citizens, business owners, land owners, and visitors to listen and learn. The best, most productive solutions will be found through consensus.

Please feel free to contact me at 503.449.8445 or via email at

I, like so many others, love this small town and wish to care for it. I would be honored to have your vote.

Mary Leverette
