I first met Scott Christianson in the late '90s, and later we served together on several service projects. His positive approach to problem solving was refreshing and inspiring.
As the 2010 census will confirm, Boone County is rapidly expanding. With this growth come increasingly complex issues and responsibilities that must be addressed. These issues have a large impact on county residents; they require the dedicated attention of a leader who has not only a great deal of foresight, but skills to creatively solve problems.
We need a presiding commissioner with a high level of professionalism, modern technology skills and youthful energy to meet the opportunities and challenges of a first-class county in the 21st century. Please join me in voting for Scott Christianson on August 3.
