Vote for Gaylord | Letters

I have known Randy Gaylord as a good neighbor, a fellow parent and a dedicated public servant. During his 24 years as San Juan County prosecutor he has shown an incomparable dedication to protecting our island communities.

He has a long list of accomplishments, but two especially impress me: the prohibition of jet skis in San Juan County, and the establishment of a first distance requirement to keep vessels from disturbing orcas in our surrounding waters.

Through his hard work and dedication on these issues, he has protected our environment, our way of life and our beloved killer whales. I know how deeply Randy cares about these islands and the people who inhabit them. He brings passion, intelligence and years of experience to the job of county prosecutor. Let’s keep him in office for another four years of good, dedicated governance. Please vote!
