This letter is paid content. We are so impressed with a candidate for First District Commissioner that we feel compelled to share our choice. That candidate is Linda Flanders. Her work as a law enforcement officer, detective specializing in child sex abuse and then going on to start a program for at-risk youth tells us that Linda is dedicated and hard-working. We had opportunities to hear her speak on more than one occasion, Linda doesn’t just talk about what needs to be done, but works to make it happen. She states that she believes in innovation. We are living in a time that demands an openness to new ideas. Commissioners have to keep an open mind as they find ways to meet the needs of the county and still not burden the tax payer with poor decisions. It is our opinion that Linda Flanders is the answer for commissioner for the First District.
