The Dalles To the editor:
To the voters of Wasco county: This is the time to take a few minutes and look at who is running for positions for our county commissioners.
I am supporting Rod Runyon for re-election to his Position 3 seat. Rod has been on the commission for four years and has done an outstanding job. He has served the veterans of this community and county for the past four years and will continue to do so. He helped support the VSO office here and has worked to help finance it through the budget process of the county.
Rod and his fellow commissioners have worked for economic growth, a balanced shrinking budget and openness to the public. Rod is willing to listen to all our concerns and make the hard decisions for the betterment of the people of Wasco County.
One of the best ones was the choice of John Roberts at the Wasco County Planning Department. John made the department customer service-oriented. It is user-friendly. The Wasco County staff works for us, the taxpayers. They have to be user friendly. Rod understands this precept because he had a small business that was successful.
I am asking all veterans and their wives of Wasco County to vote for Rod Runyon.
Most of all, register to vote and vote! Your veterans gave you the right.
