I have known Rick Hughes ever since he was a young boy and we were new owners of property in Doe Bay where his Uncle Vic’s family lives. In recent years it has been a pleasure to see Rick develop into a leading member of the Eastsound business community for he has deep roots on the island and an understanding of the island’s history, culture, and commerce. Now he and his wife Marlace are the managers of Ray’s Pharmacy, a major successful island business.
Rick has stepped up to serve the community as a member of EPRC and has helped facilitate the pro-bono work of the Prune Alley Development Team. I have observed his skills as an excellent communicator and problem solver, for he is able to listen, think beyond the box, and move things forward.
He has repeatedly demonstrated his readiness to lend a hand or contribute for the good of island community life. Informed, hard working, open minded, and forward looking, Rick is the ideal candidate for a county council seat. I urge you to vote for him
