HORTON ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY
Avery Horton has filed to run for Coos County Commissioner #3.
“When Coos County voters decided against the transient lodging tax, my opponent basically called them stupid:
"The voters didn't know enough about it or the specifics so it's two legs of the same stool," Cribbins said. The World, Nov 3, 2015.”
And that is why I decided to run. I will listen to the Coos County voters, taxpayers and citizens.” Horton said.
My focus will be in 3 areas:
- Eliminate waste;
- Reduce bottlenecks;
- Get rid of the deadwood.
Is it unconstitutional? YES – vote against.
Is it an unnecessary increase in taxes? YES – vote against.
Is it an unnecessary restriction of the citizens' freedom? YES – vote against.
Does it go against commonsense? YES – vote against.
I will put my money where my mouth is... I will do the job for half the salary. If that is not allowed then I will donate every other paycheck to the Emergency Management Department to be used to educate Coos County citizens about disaster preparedness.
End of release.
