Sissi Bruch’s willingness to serve as Clallam County commissioner gives us an exceptional opportunity for outstanding leadership.

Sissi Bruch’s willingness to serve as Clallam County commissioner gives us an exceptional opportunity for outstanding leadership.

Her personal and professional life provides evidence of her dedication to public service. It includes a decade of contributing to Clallam County.

Currently a senior planner for the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, she also is an elected Port Angeles City Council member and serves on city committees. She is a past member of the Port Angeles Planning Commission.

Her experience in private business includes 10 years as a professional planner, designer and project manager for residential and business developments, schools, golf courses and reclamation sites.

As a member of the Planning Board in Lansing, Mich., she reviewed budgets, ordinances and planning documents. Her work included a trail project and redesign of a river front.

With university degrees in psychology, landscape architecture and urban planning and contributions to national and international publications, Dr. Bruch has taught at major universities.

We need her abilities and experience in the position where the retiring county commissioner has served us well. We are fortunate indeed to have her as a candidate.

Robbie and Jim Mantooth

What about the middle school?

I got my ballot for the upcoming School Bond election today (April 7). As I read about the school bond proposal, I saw one glaring omission in planning for the “large number of future students”: What happens in five years when these students graduate from elementary school and go to middle school?

Letter: Vote for Yacklin

My wife and I have known Kim Yacklin for over 20 years. She is exactly what we need in the Auditor's Office, someone who has a high level of understanding of the operations of the county and someone who has the integrity, professionalism and intelligence to run a department.
