Letter: Bring jobs to Douglas County with House District 2 election

Vote experience for District 2

Kerry Atherton is the only candidate of the four running for House District 2 who has the work experience, national and international cultural awareness and maturity to fulfill the requirements to bring jobs to Douglas County.

He is a fifth-generation Douglas County resident. The Yokums and Athertons were pioneers to this area and that fighting spirit of individualism and independence drives Kerry Atherton to seek ways to bring jobs to Douglas County.

Kerry Atherton has a college degree in business administration from Oregon State University and a masters level education in team building, mediation and conflict resolution. He has worked for and with foreign and domestic businesses in and out of the state of Oregon. Those skills he can bring to Douglas County as our HD 2 representative.

More businesses mean more income for schools, social services and protections for all people. Do not vote for his opponent just because she is a sweet young lady with a very nice personality. This position is not a popularity contest, it’s serious business. This position is to represent all the residents of Douglas County. Vote for the most qualified person to fill this position. That person is Kerry Atherton. Vote for Kerry Atherton for House District 2 representative.
