10th LD, House, Pos. 1: Homola worked to improve things

I don’t just vote Democrat or Republican. I vote for the person, whom I think will do a great job.

Seventeen years ago I had the pleasure of working with Angie Homola in Island County’s Building Department. During that time, most of the workers (including myself) were reprimanded for the same trumped-up reasons that are printed on a flier that came in the mail recently. Many of us quit (like myself) and one was fired.

The consensus in the office was the manager harassed others, to take the focus off him. He sabotaged Angie’s employee file with the very garbage this flier is based on. Of note, he was later fired. The truth is she offered improvements to help the public, and did excellent plan review. What I witnessed was a woman with a brain and that can frequently be criticized (by males typically). It’s OK for a man to question, but not a woman?

Angie was very helpful to applicants, and brought flowers and baked goods to co-workers.

Before Angie decided to run for office years ago, she happened to meet my wife, who commented after she left, that she could tell that Angie was a totally honest person. I will be voting for Angie Homola for State House of Representatives in the 10th Legislative District
