I am thrilled that Peter Huhtala has entered the race for Clatsop County Commissioner in District 3. His experience and passion make him perfect for the job. I fear that some decisions that the commission has made in the past few years, however well-intentioned, will have unfortunate consequences long term.

We need a vision for our future that respects the variety and abundance that our region affords. Huhtala has been involved in the creation of projects that would bring long-lasting jobs to our community while preserving the environment with which we have been gifted.

Peter Huhtala has the temperament and integrity to bring civility, transparency and a breath of fresh air to County Government.
