Letter: Knowledge of local issues is essential for position of Douglas County Commissioner

Freeman ready to work for us

I am a fourth-generation Douglas County resident, having been raised in Days Creek and graduated from South Umpqua High School. Over the years, I have watched Tim Freeman work hard operating his business, at the Roseburg City Council and as a state representative, and I’ve been very impressed with his knowledge of local issues. Tim not only has a wide range of experience, but also has built relationships over the years and has a wide range of contacts at all levels of government.

As a commissioner in Jackson County, I understand how very local county government is. It is important for a commissioner to have a good network of relationships. Beyond that however, it’s important for a commissioner to have experience.

Tim Freeman not only understands the problems facing Southern Oregon, but, more important, he has experience in creating solutions for these problems. We don’t need more people to point fingers and say what is wrong. We need leaders who are ready to work hard from day one to help Southern Oregon forward.

Tim Freeman is this kind of leader. I wholeheartedly support him in his bid for Douglas County Commissioner.
