Strong Leadership for a Thriving Pend Oreille County
As more people discover us we’re going to face the challenges that growth brings. A key test of county leadership will be how to direct that growth in ways that keep our quality of life high and our taxes low.
That’s important with inflation at a 40-year high and showing no sign of slowing down. It now costs as much to gas up your lawnmower as it used to cost to fill your car. Higher property taxes are painful and people on fixed incomes are particularly hard hit.
County government may not be responsible but it’s still our obligation to minimize its impact. That means commissioners need discipline when spending your tax dollars, and a commitment to collect all the taxes we’re due from businesses.
I’m old enough to have built a business during a period of high inflation that had out-of-control prices. It was tough, especially when costs skyrocketed during construction. It taught me about budgeting, saving for a rainy day, and not assuming that the good times will last. Those lessons are still with me as a Commissioner.
I was appointed to be a county commissioner last September and want to keep serving you. Here’s why:
First, I’m running to make sure you get your money’s worth from county government.
Second, I’m running to make sure there’s enough money in the budget so county roads get the maintenance they need and the snowplowing you count on.
And third, I’m running so you are represented by someone who remembers that the real power in Pend Oreille County is not in the commissioner’s room at the Courthouse. The real power is in your living rooms and around your kitchen tables.
I humbly ask for your vote, your volunteer efforts, and your support. Let’s win together. God bless you.
