Leith Templin for fire commissioner | Letter

Orcas friends, please join me is supporting and voting for my friend, Leith Templin. She is an amazing, community-minded person who has served Eastsound and Orcas Island for decades.

She is a hard-working, fair and honest person who steps up when called to serve this community, from the Cemetery Board to EPRC to filling a vacant position in the Fire Commission.

I have heard some people make some comment that four of our five fire commissioners were appointed, not sure why this is bad, it is part of the process if an elected official resigns, then a replacement is appointed until the next election.

Leith has stepped up to serve and has done a good job since the appointment. I want to give her a chance to keep serving. I know my voice will be heard and listened to and she will serve with integrity.

Please join me in supporting Leith Templin for San Juan County Fire Protection District No. 2!
