I worked in the election office

I worked in the election office for 18 years with Bruce Bolinger and six months for Lorraine Jewett-Burdick. Since then, 11 other people have filled the three positions in the elections office in less than three years. We are fortunate that Kevin Waggoner became the supervising elections assistant and worked closely with all these new people.

We can elect a hard worker like Kevin, or re-elect someone who spends her work time emceeing social events, interviewing people for Channel 11 and taking care of her horses. I will vote for Kevin Waggoner because he will do the job.
