Letter to the Editor,
I support Doug Hunt for Lincoln County Commissioner. I have known Doug for over 20 years and have found him to be strongly committed to improving our communities and bettering the lives of the residents of our county.
Doug served for nine years on our county school board and has been a commissioner for just 6 short years. In both of these roles, he has been a consistent fighter for equal rights for all. He has closely monitored pay scales, widened recruiting efforts for open positions, and seen to adjustments to right inequities. He’s clearly committed to fairness and equality for all.
I have seen Doug actively involved in all types of community events, and I know he is engaged in all areas of our county. Whether it’s celebrations, award dinners, town halls, or local fundraising, Doug is present, he listens, he learns, and he responds. He is a voice for all areas of our county.
Doug stands against sexual harassment or bullying. As a county commissioner he has made it clear that such behavior is simply unacceptable. He maintains an “open door” policy and any complaint is thoroughly investigated.
I know Doug as a dedicated and passionate advocate for women’s rights, LGBTQ, and children. His record shows he believes in equal rights for all and he is endorsed by the local chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW).
He has earned my vote and my strong support!
