There are many reasons why one decides to support one candidate over another when they are first running for office.
For me, the important issues are always: what kind of commitment do they show, how dedicated are they to the position for which they are running, how well do they listen to their constituents, how concerned are they about their community, and, once elected, will they fulfill the promises they have made?
Those questions have been answered in spades!
Lisa Weik is running for re-election to the Washington County Board of Commissioners and has proven many times over just how seriously she takes her position. I have rarely seen anyone who is as dedicated and committed to her job as she is.
Commissioner Weik attends any and all meetings that help her gain more background and information in order to be more effective in her job. Lisa is an extremely caring person and considers that, having been elected county commissioner, it is her responsibility to represent us as effectively, efficiently and conscientiously as possible.
Lisa Weik has also successfully utilized her business background in deciding matters reviewed by the county board and in her role as chair of the Gateway Corridor Commission, the committee formed to study transportation options on Interstate 94.
Lisa makes data-driven decisions, and takes principled votes. I simply don’t know what more anyone could ask of a representative.
I urge everyone to check Lisa Weik’s record of these past three and a half years. I know you will be as impressed as I am.
Please vote for her on Nov. 6. No one could represent us better than she has, and who will continue to do so once reelected.
