Reading the Bellingham letter regarding our county officials made me see how many views can be gotten from one comment made by a public official! I think Knutzen's comment made about remaining silent was referring to his past comments in debates over preserving our local farm land. He had received negative feedback on being against developing our farm land! Some said he was discouraging economic growth! I for one am voting for the four people she named, Bill Knutzen, Kathy Kershner, Ben Elenbaas and Michelle Luke. They all take pride in our county and want to preserve the beauty of it!
