To the Editor:

My family and I have been fortunate enough to get to know Gordon Larson and his family. I was surprised, and disheartened, to see such a negative ad from Mr. Palmer last week, and I’m glad Gordon has stayed away from that. Grant County has the potential to restore the population that it had a few decades ago. To do this, we need forward-thinking leaders who can work towards a shared vision and diversified, strong local economy. It requires someone with the experience and aptitude of Gordon Larson.

Negative campaigns stifle Grant County’s progress. Gordon lives and works in Grant County, and has not only served us as an Oregon State Police lieutenant, but for 12 years on the Grant School District 3 board, including 10 as chairman. That’s the kind of dedication, budget expertise and teamwork we need in a commissioner.

Gordon has spent the last year personally representing his campaign, hosted 13 meet and greets and personally manned his own fair booth. He’s accessible and not afraid of public speaking or meeting the people of Grant County face-to-face. It’s good to know that he won’t shy away from publicly representing our best interests and is willing to speak up and stand up for Grant County on a local, state and national level.

That’s the kind of leader we need. Please vote for Gordon Larson.
