Thrasher would bring independent perspective

Letter to the Editor


Vote for Ashley Thrasher as County Commissioner. Why? Ashley’s truly special. Meet her in person and you’ll immediately feel this. A smoke jumper recently turned carpenter, she is sharp as a tack, hard-working, does her homework. She’s not affiliated with a political party. She thinks smart management of a county should be non-partisan, not governed by a Democratic or Republican platform. She offers an exceptionally fresh perspective, really “independent.”

She’s a key member of a growing three-generation Okanogan County family. A devoted aunt to kids of her sisters (a farmer and bookkeeper; excavator brother-in-law), Ashley is the niece of a teacher and small businessman. She doesn’t know half-speed. Just as she was voted top rookie in her smoke jumper graduating class, she’ll jump energetically into commissioners’ work. Ashley will bring an innovative approach to the needs of ALL Okanogan residents, spending your tax dollars wisely regarding jobs, small businesses, farms, ranches, public health and safety (including wildfires—a fire fighter as commissioner, that’s special).
