It is my pleasure to write this letter of support for Clatsop County Commissioner Lianne Thompson. I know Thompson through her work to support preparedness efforts along the North Coast. She was instrumental in voicing the need and supporting the development of Community Response Emergency Team (CERT) programs in Clatsop County, including our local high schools.
Commissioner Thompson attends numerous community meetings to stay in touch and lend support to important coastal issues. She was an active committee member of Seaside School District’s successful bond campaign to relocate its schools out of the tsunami inundation zone. She also volunteers with the American Red Cross, emergency ham radio, and the medical reserve corps.
Lianne Thompson strives to strengthen the safety and resilience of those in Clatsop County, and I strongly support her in that effort.
