Please vote for the formation of the water district. We need to maintain local control by people that live in the district.

I believe the letters over the last few weeks from the NPIA and others have made a lot of very good points about the need for the water district so I will not repeat them. I have been attending water board meetings for almost a year and often raised questions when I did not feel the information I was given was good or complete. I have learned a lot about the background and workings of the water district during the last year from the current board and others connected with the system.

So what else should you know about Nancy Bell who wants your vote for commissioner? I am the third generation of my family to live in Ocean Park. I moved back to Ocean Park from Vancouver because I love the area and wanted to live out my life here. I have a degree from Evergreen State University in business. I worked in purchasing and information technology as a career, retiring from Hewlett Packard in 2005. Being retired, I live on a limited income like many of the people in the district.

I am not going to be putting out yard signs since I don't like to look at them all over the place. I am not going to put any paid ads in the paper since I would rather use the money for the local animal shelter. When I came back I wanted to find a way to become involved in the community and I believe this is one place I can make a contribution.
