Kalta: Vote Stockwell for county commissioner
I was introduced to Tricia Stockwell almost eight years ago, and over the years, I've discovered she is a very sincere person who, quite literally, is someone who strives to return something to you in better condition than she received it, which is exactly what our county currently needs.
We have seen a hard-hit year that in particular had the potential to damage our community, and seeing Tricia decide to step up and run for a position to serve her community, running on a platform of reducing the salary for the very position she seeks, shows she is not in this for herself, but to do her part to not just talk about a problem, but step up to fix it.
One of the best things about her is her open mind and willingness to listen to your stance and evidence and not just brush your concerns aside, but hear you and be willing to adjust her stance if warranted. This particular position is demanding of someone exactly like that, due to its nonpartisan title, to represent all residents from all walks of life.
Please join me in voting for Tricia Stockwell for county commissioner.
