There’s too much at stake

February 5th, 2016 by Ken

With two open seats on the Thurston County Commission, it’s possible that we could go from three liberal Democratic women to three independently leaning men –  in the space of two years.

That would be a significant change in local government which seems to indicate voter disagreement with previous commissioner actions.

But, if that is the case, I’ve got to caution the candidates that local government has three responsibilities.   These are Public Safety, Public Health and Transportation.   Any campaign that deals with issues outside of those three responsibilities just shows a lack of understanding at best and a complete ignorance of government’s responsibility.

This is going to be a tough election year for those candidates seeking voter approval.     I would hope that they stick to the issues and not indulge in personal attacks.   There’s too much at stake.
