Island County needs Jeff Lauderdale

The Nov. 6 election may be the most important election in our republic’s history at all levels of government. Therefore, if you are a registered voter in Island County, make sure you take the time to vet all candidates thoroughly before you vote.

In my opinion, Island County needs Jeff Lauderdale as Island County commissioner District 1. Jeff is a highly intelligent man (Retired Navy commander, submarines, with 26 years of service; mechanical, nuclear and network engineer) of quiet, thoughtful repose.

For almost three years now, Jeff has acted on behalf of Island County citizens by voluntarily attending commissioner’s hearings and workshops twice a week. Jeff researched and exposed the flaws, faulty science, and unnecessary expense associated with the on-site septic inspection management program and then brought it to the Board of Island County Commissioners. The two Democrat commissioners, Johnson and Homola, ignored Jeff’s research despite the fact that it was validated by Keith Higman, Island County Health director. Unlike Johnson and Homola, Jeff Lauderdale has also taken the time to read Island County’s lengthy, complex and ambiguously written Shoreline Master Plan.

When you vote in November, do you want to keep the current majority who are focused on more regulation, more bureaucracy, and more taxes? Or will you opt for new commissioners who respect your property and your pocketbook?
