Letter to the Editor: Vote for Kujala or Roscoe for county seat

By Mike and Marian Soderberg, Astoria, Thursday, May 10, 2018

The election for Clatsop County Commission offers voters an important opportunity to elect two people with deep roots in the community coupled with service and a vision for the future. Mark Kujala, District #1 candidate, and Peter Roscoe, District #2 candidate, both fit that bill.

Mark and Peter have a record of involvement with volunteer groups, local government service and business ownership. We have worked with them and know how responsible and engaging they are. At this point in their lives, they also have the time and expertise to serve the citizens of our districts.

We are casting our vote for Mark Kujala, because we live in District 1. We encourage others to do the same. This will give us a strong voice on the commission. Mark understands how government works based on years of experience on the Warrenton City Commission and as mayor of Warrenton.

We also encourage voters in District 2 to vote for Peter Roscoe. He knows and has served our community for many years within government and volunteer organizations. As a retired business owner, he brings an important perspective to the commission.
