To the editor,

We strongly encourage you to vote for Dale Barrett for District 5, Greg Peterson for District 3, and Frank Orrell for District 1.

We need representation that understands land use in rural areas, cares about our roads such as Highway 202, supports our important logging industry and our fishermen. We are sick of activists running Clatsop County.

This county needs to get back to the business of the people, business they were elected to do, instead of the obvious lack of business experience we continue to see from the majority serving on the current commission.

We know they are anti-LNG, it’s all they talk about, and we are tired of it. Who are the people behind these blast zone mailers that are a lie promoting these anti-everything commissioners? A real candidate does not allow others to speak for them.

We know that the candidates named in this letter, that we hope become commissioners, want fairness for private land owners. They will help us with our issues with FEMA in the rural east part of the county, and our roads will get the attention they need. We are tired of being ignored. Please vote so all the county is represented, not just a chosen few with special interests. We want a county commission that says yes to jobs and knows how to get it done.

Mark and Jennifer Lucia
