Letter: Elect Kim Yacklin

We need a change in the County Auditor’s Office leadership. You may have done business with Karen Shewbert who owned the Sequim Vehicle and Vessel Licensing office for a number of years. On May 15, 2012, County Auditor Patty Rosand suddenly closed Karen’s office without notice and left us without a Sequim licensing facility until November 2012.

Elect Kim Yacklin

We need a change in the County Auditor’s Office leadership. You may have done business with Karen Shewbert who owned the Sequim Vehicle and Vessel Licensing office for a number of years. On May 15, 2012, County Auditor Patty Rosand suddenly closed Karen’s office without notice and left us without a Sequim licensing facility until November 2012.

Subsequently, Karen’s attorney has filed a lawsuit against Rosand in federal district court that could drag on for years and be very costly to the taxpayers.

At one time I served as the County Auditor and that’s why I have endorsed and am actively supporting Kim Yacklin.

Kim has 24 years of rock solid management experience in the County Health and Human Services Department. She has hired and trained employees. She is responsible for seven budgets totaling $8 million.

I’ve known Kim for over 21 years and she is a straight shooter. If she doesn’t know an answer, she’ll tell you so and go get it for you.

Kim has purposefully run a very clean campaign. She is in this campaign because she knows she will make positive changes within the Auditor’s Office. Kim has dedicated her 30-year career to public service. Kim’s opponent is only running because she wants a big payday.

Get to know Kim for yourself. Visit her at www.kimforauditor.com.

Please join me in electing Kim Yacklin our next Clallam County Auditor.

Ken Foster

Sequim

(Foster is a former Clallam County Auditor.)
