Hughes for council | Letter

I am again today writing for my support of Rick Hughes to be re-elected to county council. In November he won the position by gaining over 68 percent of the vote. Orcas Island has shown that we support him, but now it is time for the rest of the county to vote. If you do not know Rick, please take the time to hear him speak at one of the many forums between now and the election.

Rick is a moderate candidate with no particular alignment to any party or organization. Rick’s allegiance is with the people of San Juan County. He knows what it takes to make a living and raise a family in the Islands. Rick is involved. He has served on the Eastsound Planning Review Committee, and continues to serve on the board of the Orcas Farmers Market Association in his seventh year. Rick spearheaded a county-wide drug take back program, one of the best in the State. He is the co-president of the PTSA on Orcas, and I enjoy seeing him managing roller skating every Friday night.

Rick Hughes is fiscally experienced. He has already displayed his team building and leadership qualities in his new job as county councilman. He is the best candidate for the job. I support Rick Hughes for county council. Please consider voting for him.
