Letters to the Editor

Appreciate candidate forum held last week | Letter


I am writing to show my appreciation to the Whidbey Island League of Women Voters and the Sno-Isle Library System for providing Island County voters with another great Voter’s Forum featuring candidates for Island County treasurer and Washington State representative, Legislative District 10, Position 2. The forum was conducted professionally and gave candidates an opportunity to answer questions provided by the public as well as League members.

Questions regarding the current treasurer’s investment track record, the role of an elected official in carrying out department tasks, management styles, and inter-departmental relations and cooperation were all asked of each candidate. It was apparent that these are issues that affect all tax payers and require close attention. I was impressed by the depth of knowledge of Wanda Grone, Republican candidate for Island County treasurer. I hope you will join me in supporting her election.

Democrat Nick Petrish also proved his understanding of state issues and his qualifications to oppose the re-election of current State Representative Dave Hayes in the race for Legislative District 10, Position 2.
