The Dalles To the editor:
As a mother, school employee, and longtime resident of Wasco County, I am writing to offer my endorsement for Nora Ferguson for the office of Wasco County Commissioner, Position 1. Having known Nora for a number of years, I can personally attest to her exemplary qualities. Nora has lived in Wasco County for the last 10 years, and in that time has raised a family, owned her own business, and worked for the North Wasco County School District.
She has volunteered for myriad community programs, including 4-H, Little League, and the Boy Scouts of America. All of these things show her commitment to the people of Wasco County.
More than that, Nora’s commitment to Wasco County is shown in her stance on the issues important to all of us. Nora will serve as an active county commissioner, working to build relationships with all parties in order to be a better representative. Nora is a firm believer in creating and nourishing partnerships. In small communities, people rely on partnerships to help sustain resources, create jobs, and improve quality of life.
Finally, Nora believes in transparency of government, so the people she represents know where she stands on issues. She feels that the more means of distributing information to the public we have, the better our County Commission will function.
In all, Nora Ferguson is a tremendous candidate for the office of Wasco County Commissioner, Position 1. I wholeheartedly endorse her, and hope you will all join me in electing her May 20.
