Christian cares about community

Election season can bring confusion on whom to vote for, especially if we look past party affiliation and desire to vote for the people we believe will serve our community in the very best ways. For me, Leonard Christian - who is running for county assessor - is such a person. He is a man of great integrity and has proven through literally hundreds of volunteer hours that people matter.

If it had not been for Leonard Christian’s efforts, the Intersection at the River Food Bank in Otis Orchards would not be able to help ease the burden that many families experience. He tirelessly and sacrificially volunteered; giving his time, his finances and his expertise to help us establish the food bank that provides food every week for hundreds of people. Why would he do that? Because he truly cares about people and our community. He is the kind of person I know we can trust and will do right by us all.

I am voting for Leonard and I hope you do as well.
