I want to thank all the residents of Pacific County for re-electing me county commissioner. I will continue to represent and listen to all of the citizens of our community. We face many challenges in the next few years, and we will need to work together to solve problems linked to growth, a declining natural resource base, an aging population and tightened budgets.

A special thanks to those who worked so hard on my campaign. I have tried to find all of my signs, but if you should see a sign for a Democratic candidate, please call me at 642-2233 and I will come and get it.

Bud Cuffel

Pacific County Commissioner

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the voters of Pacific County for their overwhelming support last Tuesday. While your confidence in me is humbling, I know it comes with great responsibility. I pledge to all of you that I will continue to do the best job I can in representing you.

I would also like to thank all those who worked on and contributed to my campaign. We would not have been successful without your enormous efforts.

And finally, I would like to thank my family, especially my wife Linda, who provides the moral support and motivation every single day.

Jon Kaino

Pacific County Commissioner

To the people of Pacific County, I would like to thank all of you for voting on Nov. 2. It was wonderful to see the large numbers on such a stormy day.

I especially want to thank all of you that voted for me and the many who worked on my campaign, as well as those that supported our efforts. It is apparent that many of you are ready for a change in the direction of this county and showed it by how you voted.

I believe we can still make a difference by supporting our commissioners and holding them accountable. It is going to take all of us getting involved to turn this county around, making it a place where our children and grandchildren will have a safe, healthy, and prosperous place to live.

To Bud and Jon, I wish both of you well in your next term of office. I hope that you will work for the betterment of this county that I care for so much. It is going to be difficult to resolve the debt that your administration has brought upon all of us. I hope you can resolve the department without asking for more tax dollars from us. As you look to the future I hope you make decisions that will benefit the entire county. I believe having periodic town halls, listening to the concerns of the citizens of this county, and holding your meetings at times when all could attend would be very helpful. This may mean holding meetings in the evening so people that work would have an opportunity to be in attendance. It would also be beneficial for our citizens if the meetings were held in the areas where the people being effected could travel to with ease.

As one of the citizens of Pacific County, I will do my best to help wherever I can to make this a better place to live. Thank you again.
