Election letter: Port of Kennewick -- Barnes

July 25, 2013 

Retain Commissioner Don Barnes at the Port of Kennewick. It has been my privilege to work with Don Barnes for more than six years in Kiwanis. I'm also aware that he has earned great respect within the local business community.

Don represents the best and the brightest in our community. Objective, positive and effective, he constantly demonstrates sound moral and ethical judgement in his dealings. He is truly capable of addressing difficult issues.

His leadership abilities are evident in his professional and his business actions. Don Barnes considers situations thoughtfully and contributes creative solutions to important issues.

These are challenging times for our community. To help meet those challenges, I fully endorse retaining Commissioner Don Barnes at Port of Kennewick.
