Record of community service

In the upcoming election for Spokane County commissioner in District 3, there is a clear choice in Jeff Holy.

I’ve been fortunate enough to know Jeff for almost 15 years. In that time, I’ve come to respect him as a dedicated public servant, a devoted father and husband, an involved parent and an active community member.

Jeff raised his family in Spokane and not only understands the issues facing our county but also has proven he has the necessary skills to deal with them effectively. Jeff has always been approachable, available and responsive in every task he took on. But more important, he is courageous enough to stand by his convictions instead of caving to political pressure.

It’s time we elect a commissioner with a proven track record of responsive service to our community. Jeff is uniquely qualified to serve as our county commissioner and has earned my support. I encourage you to join me in voting for Jeff Holy.
