MIKE LAWRENCE, West Richland
I support Jerome Delvin for Benton County commissioner. Jerome has a long and admirable record of public service to our nation, state and community. In particular, his many years in both the state Legislature and Senate are invaluable in ensuring that Benton County is knowledgeable of and takes full advantage of state legislation and programs.
He also has clearly demonstrated his personal ability to work with others to provide bipartisan and effective governance and programs with the good of his constituents as the primary goal. While Jerome's opponent also has a record of public service and is a good candidate, I believe Jerome is the clear choice based on experience and effectiveness.
Let's send Jerome to Prosser, and not Olympia, for the good of our county.
