Letter: Take into account 30-plus years of Price Johnson’s steady leadership


Interesting and challenging times call for experienced leadership that listens to various perspectives and asks good questions which result in clear well thought out decisions. Nearly 20 years ago I was on a school board special education committee with Helen Price Johnson, and she was a model of servant leadership. Into that role Helen brought 15-plus years of business, family and community leadership. Today, she serves as our first female and current senior Island County commissioner.

This fall please take into account the 30-plus years of steady leadership Helen brings to the job and vote her in as our State Representative!
