Editorial-Experience does count

As we look down the barrel of another general election, it’s important to take a close look at some of the candidates that will impact Kitsap County on not only the local level but the national level as well.

As we look down the barrel of another general election, it’s important to take a close look at some of the candidates that will impact Kitsap County on not only the local level but the national level as well.

This is where U.S. Representative Congressman Jay Inslee (D) has served us well. Inslee has proven himself time and time again as a leader by not always taking the easiest or safest route to a solution.

He has also expressed a genuine interest in the environment of North Kitsap where he spends as much time as possible pushing for much-needed improvements.

Inslee has been knowledgeable and — despite his height — doesn’t get his head in the clouds when it comes to local issues.

We support his bid for re-election in Dist. 1.

We feel Sheriff Steve Boyer(D) is the only qualified candidate seeking his Kitsap County post.

Even so, he’s been doing a fantastic job for the residents here since he took office. Facing an extremely hostile climate at times, Boyer has kept the course to ensure Kitsap County’s quality of life improves despite ongoing problems of alcohol abuse, domestic violence and drugs.

Methamphetamine is on the rise throughout the area but we feel Boyer has done the best job possible in making sure that its impacts are minimal.

We sleep better knowing he’s running the show and support him for re-election.

Greg Sandstrom (R) is our best bet for continuing one of the least desirable jobs in Kitsap County — coroner.

He has the experience and the kudos to back him up as well.

Sandstrom’s performance falls under the ‘If it’s not broken, don’t fix it” category and as a result, we back his bid for re-election.
