Keep Streissguth as commissioner

It was no surprise to me when Kitsap County commissioners picked Linda Streissguth to replace departing commissioner Josh Brown. They knew her history of leadership as past chair of the Bremerton Planning Commission and past chair of the Bremerton Housing Authority. They were familiar with her leadership on the Kitsap Economic Development Alliance.

She is also a certified planner. In 2012, the Kitsap YWCA presented her with its “Women of Achievement” Award.

Those who have worked with Linda on these committees say she is a good listener who really does her homework and then finds ways to bring stakeholders together.  As a passionate community advocate and a skilled and thoughtful administrator, she has earned the admiration and respect of community leaders across the political spectrum.

Her depth of related experience and well-recognized skills as a long-range planner, problem solver and mentor have made her uniquely qualified for her role as Kitsap County commissioner for District 3.

We need to keep her in that role by electing her this November.
