Byers brings balanced view | Letters

It is very clear to me why I am supporting Lisa Byers for county council position No. 2 (Orcas).

Director of OPAL for years, she has navigated the complex waters of bureaucracies and personalities in order to achieve a stable, thriving community based organization. In addition, she is well known as a balanced facilitator, and problem solver, both of which are talents we need in county government.

She is non-ideological and sees the complexities of governing our unique island situation as a challenge to be met, not as an insurmountable hurdle. On her website she speaks of our islands’ ” blend of independence and interdependence”, which to me reflects an understanding of who we are and what we need to continually achieve.

She will have my vote and my effort to help her get elected.
