Vote for Hughes and Minney | Letter

A vote for Rick Hughes for Council Dist. #2 and Christine Minney for Dist. #1 will provide a wonderful balance to the three-member council.

At such a critical juncture, the continuity and expertise Rick brings to the office will benefit our community and put the county in a better position for an economic rebound.

Prior to my recent retirement from county employment, I served in the council office and saw, daily, the care and commitment that guides Rick’s actions. He understands the breadth and complexity of the very wide-ranging issues facing our county. Rick has a solid foundation of accomplishment in his eight years of service as a council member and has the energy and innovation to best progress our county in the coming years.

Christine Minney will bring integrity, business expertise and a sincere concern for our community to the council. As a long time islander, parent and business person, Christine draws from a wide variety of experiences. Christine and her husband have created a wonderful community meeting place that accompanies the great food. The care and commitment that creates such an environment will serve our county well.
