Letter: Act responsibly and vote this election cycle

Editor,

I want to express my gratitude for all the local candidates who are running for office in Island County.

As a volunteer for current campaigns I’ve seen first-hand the enormous commitment and sacrifice it takes to run for office.

Some of the candidates have families with school-age children and full-time jobs.

Seeing how candidates juggle all of that with the additional demands of organizing a campaign, one can’t help but be impressed with what a commitment it takes to run for office

In this election cycle, the citizens of Island County have an opportunity to vote for a county commissioner, two state representatives, United States House and Senate candidates, multiple judgeship candidates and multiple initiative measures.

It’s a testament to our democracy that we get to vote for the candidates who will best represent our values and interests. My sincere hope is that people will act responsibly and vote.

The general election is in November and there will be a lot of campaigning that will help you decide on the candidate of your choice.
