Support for Rick Hughes | Letter

April 20, 2013 · Updated 12:33 PM

Here’s why I am voting for Rick Hughes for county council:

Management Experience – Rick has many years of experience in the real world operation and management of both big business and small business. He will bring proven, day-to-day expertise on budgets, policies, legislation, personnel matters, and the many other issues brought to the county council.

Love for the Islands – His family has roots on Orcas Island since the 1940s. This life long experience has given Rick a deeply rooted sense of what it means to be an independent, neighbor loving, and freedom loving islander.  He has eagerly contributed his time and talent to the Orcas Island Community on the Eastsound Planning and Review Committee, the Farmers’ Market, the school’s Farm to Cafeteria program, the Orcas Seniors, the Food Bank, and the Board of Health.

Personality – Rick has a wonderful, outgoing personality which will serve him well with county staff, visitors, and most of all, with his constituents. He is keenly aware of the importance of having a friendly and effective “customer service” policy on the part of the County.

Please join me in keeping this fine Orcas Islander in office.
