Mattens for good management

With Island County’s current financial situation, what we need most of all is very astute proven management in county government. In the assessor’s race, I believe that Dave Mattens has far and away the most management experience to bring to that office. Dave has over 20 years of management experience, first as a commissioned officer serving our country, and most recently as our current county assessor. He has been recognized for his leadership abilities in challenging situations. In his current term as assessor he has proven his management ability by applying cutting edge technology, using team management, and instituting changes in procedures and processes.

Several members of Dave’s staff have said “Dave is the best manager we have ever worked for.” Isn’t that what we need in county government? Let’s vote for Dave Mattens for Island County Assessor.
