There have been several recent letters extolling Greg Brotherton’s achievements in his first term as a county commissioner. None have mentioned Brotherton’s approval of property tax increases without a vote of the people or his apparent conflict of interest as president of OlyCap while sitting in the middle of the process by which OlyCAP receives grant money from the county.
I look back to see how my life has been made better by Brotherton’s term as a county commissioner and am not finding anything. This is specially disturbing because I am a constituent in District 3, which Brotherton supposedly represents. Additionally, Brotherton has supported social change which is controversial.
Marcia Kelbon is more conservative in how our tax monies should be spent. She has actually defined a plan of action to help the homeless, taken a stand on county officials overreaching their authority, and definitely has a business background more successful than Brotherton’s.
Marcia is a worker who seeks challenges and has succeeded in solving problems. Brotherton has not solved the problems he has worked on.
If you as a voter are deciding how to vote this November, ask yourself, “Am I better off since Greg Brotherton was elected?”
If you are worse off, or breaking even, the answer to that question is NO!
The next questions you ask yourself should be “What will you lose by continuing to support Brotherton?” and “What might you gain by supporting Marcia Kelbon?”
