04/06/2006: "A Call For Candidates For CC"


To the Editor:

The recent announcement that Gene Knapp is going to run for councilman for his district at Orcas personifies a major success of one of the key objectives of the charter. The amendment that set up the; six-member, part-time commissioners who need to campaign only in their specific district, was intended to attract candidates exactly like Gene. I doubt that Gene would have considered running under the old arrangement, but now the County has been given an opportunity to capitalize on the talents and background of this outstanding individual.

I hope that others of similar talents will think seriously about this opportunity. We are now in a position to attract a much broader range of candidates than ever before. Persons with current jobs such as teachers, electricians, lawyers, real-estate agents, or retirees, will all find the new situation much more conducive to being a councilperson for our County. The prospect of a council populated by persons of Gene Knapp's abilities, talents, background and personality is an exciting prospect.
