We have lived in Whatcom County for almost 50 years and have taken part in planning the future of this county for our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We want our great-grandchildren to be proud of where they grow up. We believe the people we choose to represent us in Whatcom County is actually more important than who we elect in federal elections. That is why we urge citizens to vote for Ken Mann, Carl Weimer, Barry Buchanan and Rud Browne to help preserve our country lifestyles.
Bill Knutzen and Kathy Kershner have voted several times to spend "our" tax money to fight the state Growth Management Act. Over $150,000 of our hard-earned money to let developers expand growth areas into farm land, etc. What and who are they doing this for? Not their children and grandchildren that is for sure. They apparently think it is more important to please the Tea Party than preserve agriculture lands and water supplies for the future.
We believe money has been flowing indirectly from SSA Marine via the Republican Party to help get them elected. We see a problem here.
It is almost time to pay our property taxes again. We don't want that money wasted again by Knutzen and Kershner.
Please vote for the future and not the past.
Mac and Donna Macomber
