Voters, please speak to your neighbors, friends and family about the upcoming election. After making hundreds of calls on behalf of candidates, I have found that there are many voters who do not subscribe to a newspaper and do not have internet access. They know nothing about who is up for election except from billboards on our roadsides, as one voter told me. So, you see, that leaves only us to discuss candidates with such voters.

Who will I vote for? We have to bring on Salley Bull for Okanogan County Commissioner with deep roots (six generations) and wide experience in our county, plus an open mind to bring all sides together. She’s done so in her town of Oroville. Now, let her dig in with Chris Branch and Andy Hover to get work done for all of us.

With Salley Bull as District 3 Commissioner, we can continue to have the well-run county government we elected in 2016 that protects access to our public lands and county roads. She’ll be proactive with local business in promoting products and services, inexpensive power rates, recreational activities and the benefits of living in small, rural communities. Salley says, “We need MORE THAN minimum wage or seasonal jobs for our county and its families to flourish.” Salley is willing to work outside the box to accomplish these goals.

And while you’re at it, vote for Ann Diamond for State House in Olympia and Christine Brown for the House in D.C.!

Note: Candidate Forum at Twisp Grange on Wednesday, October 17, 6:30 pm. Hear from the candidates themselves.
