Now, it looks like he’s getting some support from former rivals.

According to a press release from his campaign, Campbell has been endorsed by Jacob Kerr and David Roberts, who also ran for the position but failed to advance to the general election.

Former Opponents Endorse Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell is Endorsed by Two of His Opponents in the Primary Election

Vancouver, Wash. — Vancouver City Council candidate Scott Campbell today announced that he has received endorsement support from two of his opponents in the August Primary election. Jacob Kerr and David Roberts, who did not advance to the General Election, have shifted their support to Campbell, and encourage their supporters to give him their vote in November.

In his endorsement, Kerr stated, “Scott understands the issues and strives for a better future for all of Vancouver.”

Roberts agreed, saying that “Scott Campbell has been involved in this community for over 30 years and has gained the respect of its citizens.  This is rarely seen with someone running for office.” He continued, “Scott is a supporter of the arts and wants to see the arts become an economic and creative driver in Vancouver.  He is dedicated to fixing the backlog of infrastructure projects and is committed to solving our growing homeless problem. I fully support and endorse Scott Campbell for Vancouver City Council Position 1.”

Kerr and Roberts join the growing list of endorsements and support Campbell is receiving from across the community.

“I’m honored to have Jacob’s and David’s endorsements,” said Campbell. “They both worked so hard during the Primary election to reach voters and listen to the issues — I know, because I saw them in action. At the forums, at events, and out talking to voters. It was a pleasure to run alongside them, and I am grateful for their support. I believe they truly care about the interests of our community, and their support means a lot to me.”

Campbell, who won the Primary election with 55% of the vote, is continuing to run a robust campaign to reconnect Vancouver voters to their community and bring experience, knowledge, and commitment to community to the Vancouver City Council.
