Johnson is collegial

My husband and I have owned and operated our own business in Spokane for almost 26 years. Over those many years, I have learned the importance of establishing strong collegial relationships in order to accomplish my goals for success. Working collaboratively with others, and compromising when necessary, has more often resulted in win/win situations that benefited all involved.

My recent observations of our Spokane County government have convinced me that reason and cooperation are not being employed by the incumbent, and we citizens are being treated to wasteful spending and unsatisfactory outcomes. No thank you!

My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Mary Lou Johnson and have had the opportunity to see her competence and her amazing capacity for getting things done firsthand. She’s extremely intelligent, reasoned and has the heart to work for what’s best for the residents of Spokane County.

For these reasons, I support Mary Lou Johnson for county commissioner. She has shown that she knows how to work with people to get things done. I encourage you to join me in voting for smart government.
