Letter: Rick Hannold understands what’s best for community

Editor,

Janet St. Clair is a talking head managed by puppeteers from “Freattle.” She has only lived on Camano for three years.

How could she have the same ideas or thoughts about “what’s best for us?”

I am one of those people whose family has lived on this island for many years.

My ancestors were here when it was Oregon Territory. My grandfather helped build the Deception Pass Bridge with the CCC in the 1930s.

Janet wants to infuse Freattle on us and we don’t want that.

We want to have the rural character we have all come to love and admire — and yes, sometimes take for granted.

Change is inevitable — that’s OK, but it must be carefully planned out. One trip to Freattle will make you question if you want that here in Island County — but we have plastic straws, so far.

The jet noise seems to be a problem with many — not me. I live right in the flight pattern and love the sound of freedom. It is imperative our military is well prepared to defend our nation.

They must practice to do so. Our current district no. 3 commissioner was elected to represent our values.

We are voting for Rick Hannold because he listens.

He has common sense, integrity and truly represents us. He is our voice — the voice of reason.
