I feel deeply committed to serve as a devoted caretaker of this amazing place known as Island County, and having lived on Whidbey Island and spent the last nine years working intimately with the Board of Island County Commissioners, I wish to continue the forward movement of both sense and compassion established by Helen Price-Johnson and other community leaders. - Melanie Bacon

The Local Paper is Right - Candidate Adds Sizzle

Melanie Bacon Candidate Home Page

The Whidbey News-Times is covering Melanie's entry into the race for county commissioner, District 1, and the candidate is off to a rousing start. As Jessie Stensland puts it:

"Bacon has worked with eight different county commissioners during nine years at the county and sees that “forward movement” has been established in recent years by Price Johnson and other leaders.  


“Each day I witness the cooperative work of the current Board of Island County Commissioners,” she wrote, “and I am determined to maintain and encourage that important bipartisan effort to benefit everyone who calls Whidbey or Camano Island their home.” 


Bacon has an amazingly diverse background. She is an Army military intelligence veteran, a former leader in the National Organization for Women, a prison chaplain, a founding member of an educational endowment foundation, a member of a board for a domestic violence shelter and a former chairperson of a planning commission and zoning board responsible for a long-range plan. 


Also, she’s a novelist and an actress and musician active with WICA and Whidbey Playhouse."
