Dedicated to excellence in every way; Byers in District 2 | Letters

It has been my honor and pleasure to work with Lisa Byers for nearly a decade, both on the board for OPAL and as legal counsel for OPAL homeowners.

I support her candidacy for County Council without reservation. Lisa’s commitment to her work is admirable both from the grass roots up and administrative level down, relating to community members from all walks of life and all echelons of society.

Her leadership elevated OPAL to a nationally recognized level. I’ve never worked with a professional with more integrity, which she brings to all conversations with diplomacy, not a hammer. Her abilities to process detail and manage a complicated budget are exemplary.

Lisa’s intelligence is merely her starting point for success, followed by her dedication to excellence. She is a very good communicator, which necessarily includes the critical ability to listen as well as to speak with care. Her compassion for her community is unsurpassed.

Please join me in voting for a candidate who will put the needs of the community first, who will work collaboratively and creatively to find solutions to complicated problems, and who will step up to the plate to lead our county in this critical time.
