I support Larry Givens in his race for Umatilla County Commissioner. Although I do not know his opponent, I just can’t see the case for making a change. Larry has been a conscientious and hard-working commissioner, and has given of his time and energy over and over again on behalf of the citizens of this county.

As a regular exhibitor at the Umatilla County Fair, I appreciate his efforts to get the fair up and running at its new location on Airport Road. Larry knew that we long ago had outgrown the old fairgrounds in town, and he worked with the City of Hermiston to develop the new fairgrounds out by the airport into a first-class facility. Last year’s fair, the first in the new location, was a great success.

Whenever you go to a farm-related event, you will see Larry there. Whenever you have a problem involving county government, you can count on Larry to roll up his sleeves and try to address it. That’s why I think we should keep him in place, working for us in Umatilla County. Re-elect Larry Givens as our county commissioner!
