For Terry Thompson’s seat on county commission, we have two capable candidates, both Terry and his challenger, Kaety Jacobson. Terry has done so much to support our fishing community and our marine science sector, and we can be grateful for his service. That said, it is time to move forward and embrace a new generation. When asked why he was running again, Terry said it was to finish projects he was working on. With Kaety Jacobson, we have a person who can do this work and more. She knows the fishing community and the marine science community. She is also a foster parent who understands the social fabric of our community. She is a proven leader and will bring new ideas, something our commission dearly needs. Kaety is the right person for the job, and electing her means we will lose nothing, and have so much to gain.
