Last weekend my friend and I borrowed his girlfriend’s car to do a bit of local exploration: Whatcom County style. We headed out through Nooksack and onto South Pass Road, stuffed $2 into can in trade for a bag local hazelnuts, toddled around Silver Lake and completed our journey with a pint at the North Fork Brewery. Whatcom County you are an outstanding place – you keep it rural, you keep it clean, you keep it wide open and green. I found myself fast forwarding 30 years and considering, for a moment, how different this same trip might look. Are we doing a good job of preserving this place?
Well… the good news is we can be. Good jobs take good leadership; good leadership takes commitment, and somewhere in there you have to spice it up with thankless appreciation, unpaid service, proven experience and above all a curious mind and good heart. To help lead Whatcom County you need to prove that you understand and support the ideals of smarter growth, farmland preservation, a commitment to environmental quality and a strong local economy. These ideas are unique in a place like Whatcom County.
Ken Mann represents these ideals and provides me with confidence that Whatcom County will grow stronger. We need Ken Mann on County Council, vote.
