Lisa Byers is the best qualified candidate for the county council from District 2 (Orcas and Waldron). Her experience over the past 18 years with the Land Bank and Opal Community Land Trust have given her an unmatched understanding of the workings of our county government as well as familiarity with both our state government and the various agencies that play such an important role in the operations of our small county.
Despite what some Republicans would have you believe, this knowledge and understanding of county and state government is much more important in our representatives than a career in the corporate world. Lisa not only brings this knowledge and understanding to the table, she also has the capacity and skill to work effectively with diverse groups. Lisa excels at creating approaches and solutions that include everyone involved.
Lisa is not a divider. She brings people together. Please vote for Lisa Byers for county council District 2.
