Supporting Eisler and Worthington on Nov. 5

“Stormwater” is on Beth Worthington’s mind. City of Poulsbo bases our stormwater fee upon the roof area — i.e. the larger your roofing area, the larger your stormwater bill.

North Kitsap School District should be getting a very large stormwater bill soon, based on this criterion, and a headache as to paying or lowering this expense.  I believe that besides tackling education programs, Worthington has the experience and skills for a systems approach to tackle NKSD’s facilities maintenance and funding problems — stormwater and otherwise.

“Stormwater” is also on Melody Eisler’s mind. In a Coffee Oasis coffee chat, she shared with me that the outflow from Wilderness Park makes its way under SR305 and around Coffee Oasis, etc., and that a large contributor to stormwater is NKSD’s roof area.

She may not have government operations experience, but she has the research skills to complement the city and school working together to minimize problems and expenses, and maximize innovation and productivity for Poulsbo’s wellness — stormwater and otherwise.

Worthington and Eisler — vote ’em in!
