Fosbury is the right man for the job

    As a former Planning and Zoning commissioner and three-term county commissioner, I had a 20-year opportunity to watch Dick Fosbury making land-use presentations as an engineer on behalf of many clients, including wealthy developers, local nonprofit environmental organizations, and farming and ranching interests. Though I sometimes had a different view on the subject matter of the application, I was always impressed by the courteous and intelligent manner in which Dick made his case for his clients and his continuing efforts to find a common ground for the discussions and a consensus for everyone involved. These are character qualities which all of us want to see in the state Legislature.  
    Dick Fosbury understands the needs of all the counties in District 26 and has demonstrated his knowledge of the legislative process and what counties need to succeed in these difficult economic times.
    More recently, I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fosbury on revisions to Blaine County’s Comprehensive Plan. Dick’s emphasis on the environment, education, fiscal responsibility, government efficiency and non-partisan solutions to our community’s long-term future convince my wife, Carol, and I that Dick Fosbury is the right man for the job of representing our district in the state Legislature.
    Please join us in voting for Dick Fosbury for state representative so we can all have the right man for this important job.
