We will have a new state senator for District 29 this year with the retirement of Sen. David Nelson. Sen. Nelson has represented our district with distinction.
I would like to encourage everyone who is a registered Republican to support Bill Hansell in his pursuit of Senate District 29. I have observed Commissioner Hansell as an active, engaged representative who routinely takes the time to listen. He always seems to be available to the residents of Umatilla County and a person to bring people together. He is a major reason that Umatilla County works so well.
In these trying and difficult times it is important to know who you are voting for, and just what they represent. Its not hard to figure out what Bill Hansell will do for the citizens of District 29. He has 29 years of public service on the record, 29 years of steady progress for a county and its people.
To those who say we need change in government, I agree. We need more representatives like David Nelson and Bill Hansell. Lets elect someone with a proven record, a real conservative who will look out for the best interests of the people they represent. Thats why I am voting for Bill Hansell.
