Letter: Vote for qualified, committed candidates

Harry Olmstead

June 7 is the primary election for three seats on the Johnson County Board of Supervisors. We have the choice between six candidates who have studied the issues.

Many facets of our lives are touched by issues that the county board decides on; transportation, air and water quality, parks, public health, law enforcement and jail, civil defense, voter registration and elections. Do you want someone who is ill prepared to assume oversight over these areas? I don’t. I want new and refreshing candidates to represent me.

Lisa Green-Douglas, Pat Heiden and Jason Lewis have studied the concerns of the county and have shown they can do the homework and research to serve us best. Please join me in casting your votes on these qualified, dedicated and committed candidates.
