We islanders sometimes boast that having no bridges makes these real islands. We kind of like that.
But there’s one case where bridges are good. It’s the collaborative kind we need between nonprofits and businesses, and between islanders of divergent interests.
Working as director of OPAL Community Land Trust, or on such committees as her recent role on the solid waste committee, Lisa Byers has a proven record of using her skills and experience to achieve healthy discussion and outcome.
If you don’t know much about her yet, please look into what she would bring to the County Council in the District 2 position. She has my vote. We need her on the council.
