General Election: County needs Josh Brown's experience
October 29, 2010 · 9:29 AM
Since moving to Kitsap County in 1994, I have been very impressed with the quality of the majority of individuals elected to public office in this county. We are lucky and cannot let this slip away on Nov. 2.
During this time of economic stress, more than ever we need the best and brightest. Our county commissioners are very essential in managing our resources. The three positions require people with integrity, knowledge and experience.
It is very important we keep Josh Brown as county commissioner. Brown is the senior member of the board. He is a Kitsap native who came back home after earning a degree in interdisciplinary studies with a minor in city and regional planning from the University of California, Berkeley, and working for five years as a real estate broker. Since returning to Kitsap County, he has dedicated himself to serving as county commissioner.
The commissioners oversee a $300 million budget and 1,200 employees, plus the departments of Public Works, Community Development, Parks and Recreation, Personnel and Human Services, Administrative Services and Information Services. These duties, plus serving on local and regional councils, requires the dedication and experience of our present commissioner, Josh Brown. Invest in our future and vote for Brown.
