I am going to vote for Chris Blackman for county commissioner because I believe we need fresh blood and a new way of approaching problems.
The same people, with the same stale ideas, clearly are not working. I believe before something new comes up, the current people already know what the other has planned and jumps on it before they get their chance. However, those ideas just aren't working anymore regardless of who gets to them first.
We need someone unknown, who is full of fresh, original ideas who can get us where we need to be. New blood will throw some curve balls into the ring and thus lead to some new approaches to some of the same problems and untrodden ones as they crop up.
I am also voting for Mark Spinks. I was impressed with his ability to think outside of the box (I read in the U-B).
Jim Johnson says he admires the other current commissioners, so we can already see how they will stick together. We need growth. However, new blood is essential to achieve that.
