Jamie Stephens for county council | Letter

March 25, 2013 · Updated 4:57 PM

Jamie Stephens deserves your vote for the San Juan County Council. He has proven by his public service to date that his judgment and perspective extends to all the islands. But it is his breadth of interest in so many different facets of our island communities that makes him a stellar candidate.

Jamie has been active in water resource issues, land use planning, affordable housing, social services through the Lopez Family Resource Center, local business development, land conservation and even the Lopez 4th of July parade.   His work on the county council has taken him deep into balancing public budgets, competing interests and challenging new initiatives such as solid waste solutions that work differently on separate islands, solutions that stress community involvement.   That’s why he’s a good fit for the Council of a county government with so many different missions serving many island communities.

Jamie knows what makes a community work and how people must work together to keep a community moving ahead. He is the right choice to lead county government for the benefit of all the island communities of San Juan County.

I urge you to vote for Jamie Stephens for the San Juan County Council.
