Resident fan of Homola

I am a diehard Angie Homola fan. But this didn’t happen as a result of being inundated with a barrage of signs. It happened as a result of a comparison of the candidates running for Island County Commisioner District 2.

What impressed me most — right after her effective work on the current Island County Board of Commissioners — is that Angie states her first priority is the need to “create local business and living-wage job opportunities.

Angie has already proven her ability to cope with and reduce the county budget in spite of the economic downturn and the fact that the “Rainy Day” fund had already been decimated before she took office. Today, Island County has an upgraded bond rating, as well as a balanced budget. At the same time, Angie pays responsible attention to land use and development.

And what does her opponent have to offer the community? More temper outbursts and no proven record of leadership? In today’s recessive economy and volatile world, I will vote for the candidate who has walked the walk — not just talked the talk. I will vote for Angie Homola for Island County Commissioner District 2. After you have made your own comparison of the candidates, I hope you will join me.
