Pratt provides proven leadership | Letters

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lovel Pratt on county, state and national issues and she has repeatedly proven herself to be an effective and energetic leader.

Lovel has both the skills and temperament to lead San Juan County through these difficult and often contentious times.

I appreciate the fiscally responsible approach with which Lovel has addressed the county budget process and she has certainly been a strong advocate for protecting our islands against possible oil spills and recognizing the importance of continued viable farming in our county.

But most important, Lovel has demonstrated that she listens and is considerate of all perspectives before making decisions. Please join me in voting for Lovel Pratt for county council, District 1.
