To the editor:
I had the honor to serve the citizens of The Dalles as Mayor for almost 12 years and the privilege of working at Wasco County for 15 years. I know from first hand experience that when the city, county and other local government agencies work together the people are better served and tax dollars are saved. It is critical that our county leaders work to create, and maintain, a culture of cooperation and partnership within county government, between local governments and throughout the region.
As a community we should never settle for mere survival. We should only settle for a future filled with success and prosperity for each and every individual who calls this place home. As citizens we should select leaders who are willing to listen, learn and move us forward.
I believe that Bridget Bailey is the right person for the job. She has the passion, vision and independence to help move us towards that bright new future. Please join me in voting Bridget Bailey for Wasco County Commissioner.
