Gordon: Vote Dudzic for positive change
We have the opportunity for change during this election.
Brandee Dudzic is campaigning for the position of Columbia County Commissioner. Brandee brings positive change in her qualifications.
Some of her opponents are promising jobs in trade for campaign endorsements or funding by fossil fuel industry and like-minded big business. Brandee knows that the promise of jobs for county residents will die on the vine.
These businesses sell themselves as the answer to the economy of north county. Brandee has studied these promises and has found that if there are any jobs available, they will go to Longview residents, or will come along with positions already filled as transplants from the home states of these businesses, or the number of jobs — if available — will be just a small number, around a dozen.
These tall tales of job availability have happened repeatedly in Columbia County. Instead of depending on businesses with poor ecological standards, Brandee hopes to pursue industries with real jobs and training, which provide clean energy to Columbia County and beyond.
Brandee has a clear vision for the future, while maintaining her support and understanding for historical Columbia County.
Vote for Brandee, a mother, a veteran and your neighbor. Brandee brings the positive change Columbia County needs.
