Re-elect Commissioner Angie Homola | LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Angie Homola deserves a second term as commissioner for District 2. Her keen interest as a citizen activist led her to challenge Mac McDowell, a four-term commissioner. Despite all the advantages of his incumbency and a plurality of Republican voters in the county, she defeated him.

Angie Homola deserves a second term as commissioner for District 2.

Her keen interest as a citizen activist led her to challenge Mac McDowell, a four-term commissioner. Despite all the advantages of his incumbency and a plurality of Republican voters in the county, she defeated him.

She has taken her can-do attitude with a tenacious work ethic and has provided the strong leadership the county has needed during these challenging times. Angie thoroughly researches every issue so that she is well informed to make decisions on complex issues.

During her tenure she has guided the county to achieve a vast array of accomplishments. The bond rating was upgraded from A to AA by reducing the general fund budget by 20 percent. These cuts have been controversial but necessary. Her accomplishments have had a huge impact on our quality of life.

The one that stands out the most for me is county government is more transparent and accessible to every citizen.

Given the way we value our quality of life, it is reassuring to know Angie will bring her dedication and passion to serve as Island County commissioner for four more years. A vote for

Angie is a vote for our future.
