Voters in Clatsop County who live in District 5 have the opportunity in May to vote for a new county commissioner to represent us. Debra Birkby, who has been in Arch Cape with her family for many years, has chosen to run for this important position.
For those fortunate enough to know Birkby, you are, I would guess, already planning on voting for her. For citizens who haven't had the pleasure, she is out making every attempt to meet people in our district, to listen to our concerns and tell us about her views and her goals.
Please, look for fliers and posters with the dates and places she is going to be, and take the time to get to know her. Visit her Web site www.debrabirkby.com, and talk to your friends and neighbors. And when your ballots come in the mail, vote for her to represent us. We need her voice and her vision.
