Lucky to have Homola serving | Letters

I’m glad to see in the voters guide, Jill Johnson believes, “It’s time we change the tone of leadership from confrontational and accusatory, to trusting and collaborative.”

That, together with her statement about Kelly Emerson being a cause for “buyers remorse” at the Elks club candidate’s forum in Oak Harbor on July 11, indicates that she is aware of who is creating the accusatory and confrontational atmosphere.

But then, is it trusting and collaborative to say about someone you may be working with in the future that there is “buyers remorse?”

Doesn’t sound so collaborative to me. Do you ever get the feeling that some politicians will say anything to try to pass muster? I do.

I have watched Angie Homola in action a few times now and it’s my opinion that we are lucky to have her represent us. She reels off facts and figures and consequences on a moment’s notice and that’s because she’s studied the issues, she knows what she’s talking about. She’s articulate and smart and not shy of the truth.

Most of us are coming through the worst economic difficulties of our lives. To not recognize the dedication and resourcefulness of Angie’s commitment to our county’s wellbeing would be a waste of an exceptional commissioner. I have heard from many Island County employees that she is considered one of the best commissioners we have ever had. It’s important that we keep her. Vote for Angie!
