Letter: Janet St. Clair best for commissioner

Editor,

I read the article about the county commissioner district 3 candidates with interest. I think you captured the Janet St. Clair campaign. It’s clear from your reporting that Janet St. Clair is a real go-getter.

Janet also works and volunteers and then campaigns every evening and weekend. I appreciate the coverage of Whidbey News-Times that points out which candidate takes this race seriously and is willing to work hard for your vote.

Janet brings people together to work for common goals.

That’s how she built this campaign team. Janet’s expertise in connecting community concerns with reasonable solutions is a part of her gift, recognized by the donors, volunteers and supporters working to help her get elected. Janet and her volunteers have knocked on over 3,000 doors. Janet has spoken to hundreds of residents at doors, house parties and community events.

She is committed to hearing individuals’ issues and discussing possible solutions. She looks in depth at every issue that comes up. She takes questions seriously and always gets back to people. She will bring that commitment to service and accessibility to the board of county commissioners.

I urge every voter in Island County to take advantage of candidate forums and other opportunities to meet Janet and to discuss your concerns. Once you meet Janet, you are going to want to support her. If you are in district 3, you get the privilege of voting for her in the primary and again in November general election.

The rest of us, our vote in November will make her our next Island County commissioner.
