I first met Dennis Long about 45 years ago when we worked together. I found that he was eager to learn and highly committed to succeed. Promotions separated us but I continued to watch Dennis move up to the corporate ladder with ever increasing responsibilities. When I considered retirement, I was delighted when Dennis agreed to succeed me as president of the Bank of the Pacific.

Dennis has proven he can work with small groups as well as large groups and is an excellent communicator. He has strong analytical skills which include budgeting as well as short term and long-term planning ability. We need someone with his skills more than ever as we move into the future.

I ask that you join with me in voting for Dennis Long as commissioner for Pacific County Fire District No. 1.
