Letís vote intelligently

Blaine County voters for county commissioner are fortunate to have a competent, hard-working, dedicated county commissioner named Angenie McCleary in District 3. We should vote for her at the polls on Nov. 6, or sooner by absentee ballot, and keep her working for all of us.

County commissioners are required to run for office under a political designation, but in Blaine County they are not political partisans, they are public servants. Independents, Republicans and Democrats can all comfortably vote for Angenie. 

The county is facing a myriad of crucial problems. We need a county commissioner: who has actual leadership experience in county government rather than simply criticizing from the sidelines; who is contemplative rather than explosive; who studies each issue thoroughly and deliberates in a calm, quiet manner; who listens to all sides of an issue rather than taking a dogmatic or flamboyant stand in advance; who gets along with other officials and the public; and who seeks consensus rather than acting in a confrontational, divisive manner.

As a former county commissioner myself, I fully support Angenie. Please join me and my friends in voting for Angenie McCleary. You can call or email me if you’d like more information.

We get all the positive benefits and none of the negative downsides with Angenie McCleary, so let’s vote intelligently.
