It was a close campaign. Some very important issues were raised. I praise Mr. Lynn for his hard work to bring valid concerns to the people. The haphazard way the county makes policy has opened us up to million in liability and 38 lawsuits. The job base is shrinking not expanding. We need a better way to address the future of the county.
I welcome Mr. Lynn and his supporters. All of those who still believe we need change are welcome to join the team. I also believe we need to address issues of emergency preparedness, a positive business climate, and affordable housing. We need to win because we can not stay in put. Mr. Angel has accomplished what he sought to do. Now it is time to move forward. I welcome Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and everyone else in this campaign to improve our county.
