This commissioner election is about character — about the ability to build nonpartisan coalitions, find common ground and craft compromises that work for the whole county, not just for wealthy retirees.
Heidi is a proven leader with a long track record of getting things done right here in Jefferson County.
Heidi has lived and worked here for 40-plus years. She has extensive experience creating exactly the kinds of public-private-nonprofit partnerships that succeed in our rural county. She’s spent decades forging relationships and building trust. That’s why Heidi is endorsed by all three current commissioners, as well as three former commissioners, and nine current and former mayors.
Heidi can work with our existing leaders. Her opponent spent her whole career in the I-5 corridor, spending big-city budgets, and her campaign is largely funded by out-of-county big donors.
Ask yourself who’s trying to buy this election, and why?
Do we really want someone who’s never had to earn a living here, send kids to school here, or struggle to rent a home here — setting policy on jobs growth, affordable housing, and creating a sustainable economy? “Deep roots” are no substitute for local knowledge.
Heidi listens — not just to folks who agree with her, but to critics and naysayers. She’s good at finding common ground and crafting real-world solutions.
Her opponent is a “my way or the highway” bulldog, always pushing her own agenda at the expense of all other views, and then throwing tantrums if she doesn’t get her way. If Lorna literally can’t find a way to compromise with a constituent about something as simple as placing campaign signs, threatening lawsuits and yelling, how she can hope to represent all of District 2?
Vote local experience, integrity and common sense. Vote Heidi.
