This year’s ballot is long and crowded, but one of the most critical decisions for those of us who live or work in Island County is who are elected as our county commissioners. And, for those who are concerned about the economic and environmental future of Island County, I strongly encourage you to vote to re-elect Angie Homola.
Angie is a workhorse — deeply knowledgeable of the issues facing Island County, learned by studying and listening — and through her many years of volunteer and professional work in Island County. She has, time and again, demonstrated her commitment to increased transparency and accountability in government. She has made hard and prudent decisions in the face of severe budget constraints.
I’ve worked with Angie on a number of issues and continue to be impressed by the time, energy and expertise that she puts into her job — and that her decision making is based on doing her homework, really listening and paying attention to the record and facts — not rhetoric. That’s my experience — but I’d also point readers to the fact that Angie has earned endorsements from an amazingly diverse set of interests and individuals — including unions, business owners, current and former elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, environmentalists and many others.
Based on her job performance, Angie is by far the best-qualified candidate for District 2. She deserves to be re-elected.
