PHILLIP LEMLEY, Richland
I would like to voice my support for Jerome Delvin's candidacy for Benton County Commissioner. I have known Jerome for many years now. I believe he is an honorable advocate, committed to the citizens of Benton County through his efforts in Olympia for our Legislature.
The contacts, relationships and experience Jerome has developed over the years will be invaluable to the future of Benton County and our citizens. This advantage of knowing how to get things done will give Benton County the needed edge when all else is equal.
That edge will become extremely important as our county grows and evolves through changes in our economic structure where water issues, transportation needs, new energy initiatives and expanded agricultural opportunities become even more crucial to our future.
I believe he will make a strong contribution and addition to the team of commissioners that exists now.
