LETTER: Raines’ re-election run begins

A letter to the editor

Commissioner Raines Announces Hopes for Another Term

One of my favorite parts of being Grays Harbor County Commissioner is meeting with our citizens and communities. I have heard your needs, listened and acted to address them from every corner of our Harbor.

I am very proud of some specific projects and collaborative achievements we have experienced in the last three years. These achievements include: a more balanced budget; felony drug court; dedicated funding for criminal justice; North Beach sewage treatment improvements; ongoing flood mitigation and reduction projects that significantly affect not only Grays Harbor, but the entire Chehalis River Basin.

Time has truly flown by, and while I am proud of our accomplishments so far, there is still much work to be done. Solutions to big issues take planning, financing and implementation. I continue to work with others, completing the due diligence needed regarding potential projects, which include industrial development, new infrastructure and employment opportunities. I continue to be an active part of these collaborative efforts to strengthen our communities.

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your representative on important issues that affect our future. It has been an honor and a privilege. With your continued support, I formally announce my intent to run for re-election as your District 3 Commissioner. I will keep working hard, for you and with you. I will continue to be your voice, as we work together to strengthen our county, our communities and our citizens.

Thank you.

Vickie L. Raines

Commission candidate, District 3 Grays Harbor County
