I hope that Sue Gold will be re-elected to her Curry County Commissioner position (No. 2). I find it remarkable that during this pandemic health crisis, Sue is refusing to take political donations for her campaign from businesses or individuals. She would rather see the money go to help the people who are in need. I’d call that putting your money where your mouth is.
I also like the way she seems to be fair and careful in considering every item that comes up on the Commissioners’ agenda. She is an expert in financial management which allows her to make the best use of Curry County’s limited financial resources. We are lucky to have her looking after our welfare. Let’s vote to keep her.
We also have another big opportunity. Dennis Triglia is a write-in candidate for Curry County Commissioner Position 3. He will be running against Court Boice.
Dennis is a former Brookings City Councilor whose quiet and consistent support for multiple organizations in Curry County have made a difference for years. He’s a scientist, so his habit is to do his research and understand an issue completely before speaking up.
The decisions he made as a Councilor on behalf of the citizens of Brookings were well-considered and thoughtful. I think he will bring that thoughtfulness, honesty, sense of responsibility, and understanding of complex issues to the county as a Commissioner (Position 3).
Ballots are coming out as we speak. Everybody vote.
