In about three weeks our ballots will arrive in the mail. We will have a countywide election where we will elect 3 County Council members, each of whom will represent the entire county (going back to the system we had 5 years ago). Everybody in the county will be voting for 3 candidates, one from each of the 3 residency districts.
In residency district 3, I’m urging everyone to vote for Jamie Stephens. Jamie has lived on Lopez for 17 years and during that time he has shown a consistant commitment to community. He has served on multiple boards and committees and currently is chair of the County Council. When San Juan County needed a presence in Washington, DC Jamie paid his own way to fly there to represent our county. A full list of Jamie’s community involvement is available at electjamiestephens.com.
As we slowly come out of this recession San Juan County needs competent, effective government. With Jamie as part of a new three person County Council we will have that. He has the experience, leadership and knowledge to help move us forward.
I urge all county residents to vote for Jamie Stephens.
