Mayoral race: Erickson is better alternative

Have you ever thought “there must be a better way?” What if, with your one vote, you could make a difference? With Becky Erickson, you can. Erickson personifies classic America: She didn’t like what was happening in her community and got involved. Now she wants to do more and we are grateful for the opportunity to recommend her for mayor of Poulsbo. Erickson has the character (honor, integrity, trustworthiness) and the requisite abilities and skills to be a great leader. We have seen her inspire trust and hope. We believe Erickson has not only Poulsbo’s highest good in mind, but yours and mine as individuals, as well. For Poulsbo is not greater than the whole - Poulsbo is you and me and all of our similarities and differences - and I value Erickson’s ability to see that. Her vision for Poulsbo, one that includes opposing positions, arises from the truth that we are more than our polarities and that our contributions are important. Poulsbo would be incomplete without us. We are a community. Let’s

see what we can do and who we can be with Erickson as mayor.
