Support Bell for commission

I recommend the election of Ron Bell to the Clallam County Charter Review Commission, District 1, in the upcoming general election.

Five members of the eastern-most district in Clallam County (District 1) will be selected to work with those from other parts of the county to consider any potential changes to the Home Rule Charter, which provides control of county affairs rather than the state Legislature.

In 2007, I was privileged to serve on the Charter Review Commission. I believe Ron Bell will work well with other commissioners and listen to the public’s suggested changes to the charter. He will listen to you.

Ron is not part of a slate of candidates; he will provide an independent voice and vote for the citizens in District 1. He is a longtime citizen of Clallam County and has served on the Clallam County Planning Commission, the Peninsula College Foundation Board, Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce board, and is a past president of the Sequim Sunrise Rotary. Ron and his wife, Ruth, raised their children Kristin and Tommy here. Please join me in voting for Ron Bell.

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.

Letter: Think Positive

The local population, especially in Sequim, is intelligent, well-educated, mostly financially comfortable and old enough to appreciate the prosperity that used to be.
