I would like to start this letter with a big thank you for allowing me to represent you at the County level for the last 5 1/2 years.
I have had the opportunity to work with some great elected officials and sit beside some hard working Commissioners.
Rick Michaels who worked with me through the learning years of being a new Commissioner, Bob Thomason who brought quiet professionalism to the board. Newly elected Nate Marvin who has years of public service and has jumped in with both feet. Lastly I would like to thank Kirk Chandler for his selfless work on behalf of the County. Someone who really enjoys representing our county across the state. Kirk spends countless hours at meetings and is still excited about the next one. I am proud to say that I had the opportunity to work with him on many issues and each one of his decisions was based on what was best for our County.
Again I want to say thank you and please get out and vote. Government only works if you step up and become involved. 
By the way,  if you want to complain about the budget, show up at the budget hearings.  Surprising how much influence you can have if you actually attend the hearings.
