Port Commissioner

Huntington deserves

public’s vote

I attended the Eggs & Issues in Bremerton where Port Commissioner Mary Ann Huntington and her two opponents were there to discuss in a public fashion, the issues related to the position of Port Commissioner. It’s a shame more voters from the community were not in attendance, if for no other reason than to witness the ill-prepared nature of Mary Ann Huntington’s opponents. They had more “I don’t know” responses than actual credible, well-thought out answers. Why would anyone run for an office without having studied the materials pertinent to what his currently on the table? Considering we have approximately five days left until primary ballots are due, it did nothing to convince me that either of these two gentlemen deserved my vote.

Mary Ann Huntington, however, handled herself with extreme dignity and class, a true professional. She is a visionary who understands what needs to be done in order to lead our communities forward. We can thank her as our community begins to become even more prosperous and competitive as a tourist-attracting community, especially if she’s re-elected, allowing for the set goals to come to fruition. I know who I’m voting for. Her name’s Mary Ann Huntington.
