Garrido the most qualified candidate

The election of new county commissioners is a crucial one for those of us who live in Kitsap. That’s why I am voting for the most qualified candidate in District 2, Charlotte Garrido.

The citizens of our fine county deserve elected officials who have a proven track record of knowledge, integrity, assertiveness and an in-depth understanding of the issues affecting our county.

An appreciation for parks and open space, advocating for local economic needs, including a sound infrastructure to support new business, a deep understanding of the county budget and the ability to get the most “bang for our tax buck,” a belief in “customer service” and seeking input from constituents — all are necessary attributes that Ms. Garrido possesses.

I have not always agreed on issues with Charlotte over the past 10 years, and when we have had conversation about those differences, Charlotte has listened carefully, analyzed the situation, and then made decisions based on a wide range of information.

She is not afraid to alter her position if the facts warrant it.

Charlotte Garrido has continued to advocate for a four-year college center for Kitsap, worked diligently to support the growth of a strong, local business economy — including attracting businesses with living-wage jobs — and whether in or out of elected office, has never stopped working to make Kitsap County a better place.

In these challenging times we need strong informed leadership. We need Charlotte Garrido for county commissioner.
