It is my privilege to endorse Leo Bowman for Port of Kennewick commissioner. I have enjoyed working with Bowman on a wide variety of issues in Benton County and the Tri-Cities region. During the past 16 years, Bowman has demonstrated leadership on a broad range of interests of Benton County and its citizens. Bowman has committed his time, talent and energy to make Benton County a better place to live. Bowman has worked tirelessly across party lines and with diverse groups on important issues such as transportation, water and economic growth. During the years I served at the state level, Bowman's ability to make his constituents issues and concerns known was exemplary.
I congratulate Bowman on his past successes. There are many challenges ahead that we will be facing for the Port of Kennewick and our region. As a Benton County commissioner, I look forward to working with Leo Bowman as a Kennewick Port commissioner over the next six years.
