I would like to add my support for Janet Thompson for Northern District Boone County Commissioner. Janet knows Boone County better than anyone I know. She was born and raised here. But more important, she knows how Boone County is changing.
We need someone who engages stakeholders in defining a future that links our communities through business, transit, joint planning, recreation and regional services. In short, she's a good person. I know because I have known her for years. I know how skillful she is in creating consensus for a good cause.
