City Council needs a change
Recent actions (or inactions) on the part of elected city officials have left much to be desired, alienating volunteers, wasting time and money, and creating discontent throughout Oak Harbor. Fortunately, we have an opportunity to make changes for the next several years by voting for candidates who will pay attention to better and more proper planning.
Jim Slowik has owned and operated many businesses, and managed many staff people, all quite successfully. He will use that experience and those skills as mayor to benefit all the citizens of Oak Harbor.
Jim Palmer has also owned and operated one successful business after another. As a city council person, his organizational experience and willingness to do his homework researching and evaluating options will be invaluable.
Beth Munns has organized and implemented project after project in the volunteer community, including two terms as co-president of Navy League. Her ability to work with groups of individuals to reach consensus and common goals can be a huge asset to an often divisive City Council.
These three candidates can help to turn around a sadly dysfunctional City government. I believe their combined experience and ability will make the necessary difference in the future of our hometown. I hope you agree and will vote for Jim Slowik for Mayor, and Jim Palmer and Beth Munns for City Council.
