LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Why I’m voting for Gordon

To the editor: In 1992 Curt Gordon was instrumental in the Double Bluff conservation team to use the Conservation Futures fund to purchase the shore property to turn it into a wonderful beachfront park for people and pets. That property was going to be a housing development that would have almost totally reduced the beachfront access. He was not the only participant but he took the lead in getting it done.

In 1992 Curt Gordon was instrumental in the Double Bluff conservation team to use the Conservation Futures fund to purchase the shore property to turn it into a wonderful beachfront park for people and pets. That property was going to be a housing development that would have almost totally reduced the beachfront access. He was not the only participant but he took the lead in getting it done.

In 2000, as a member South Whidbey Park District, he was once again instrumental in getting funding for some of the very best ball fields in the Northwest. He certainly was not the only member actively trying to get this done but was a key player in getting the bonds passed to accomplish this terrific addition to our community.

After years of stalemate on the Langley Marina, Curt was able to get the port commission and the city of Langley to agree to a compromise less costly improvement and get the project approved.

I want to have a commissioner who will sit down and try to get a consensus to get things done as Curt has amply proven over the past 20 years. Anyone who knows Curt would certainly agree that his real strength is a  collaborative mindset to get things done.

I feel he is the best candidate on the ballot.
