In a past issue of the Chinook Observer, I read an article about the unpaid taxes of Pacific County treasurer candidate Renee Goodwin. This concerns me greatly as one would think that a person who will be handling our Pacific County budget should lead by example. If all our taxpayers followed Ms. Goodin's lead and did not pay our county taxes for the last three years (close to $7,000 outstanding), our county bank account would be in trouble.

I would think that the responsible way to run for an important position as treasurer would be to make sure that all personal taxes are paid prior to filing as a candidate.
