McDowell protects property rights

Here are some facts the public should know about angie homola prior to voting in the upcoming election.

Numerous WEAN (Whidbey Environmental Action Network) members support Angie Homola. WEAN has vigorously fought the county, resulting in taxpayers paying millions of dollars in lawsuit fees. Our current commissioners have stood up to WEAN in an attempt to protect our valuable property rights. WEAN and Ms. Homola have an alternate agenda. They seek to make Island County as close to a no-growth county as possible. This would affect every single property owner in Island County. WEAN and Ms. Homola are attempting to swing the pendulum too far left.

Without commissioners like Mac McDowell we would not have the checks and balances in place which are so vital to the protection of property rights in Island County. Having these measures in place benefits all property owners and taxpayers.
