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.

Professional and Notable Endorsements





I strongly endorse Melanie Bacon for District 1 County Commissioner.  As head of Human Resources at the County she knows the playing field and has the proven abilities to manage an operation of that complexity.  We intensely value our unique island environment and she has the values and abilities to both protect and enhance our cherished rural character 
I have known Melanie Bacon through her presence in the Island County community, and worked with her during campaigning this primary season. Melanie evokes the true spirit of a fair leader, is focused and dedicated to the Island community members and leading our neighbors into the next challenges that confront us. Her background and life experiences provide her with insight, compassion and tenacity to see situations through to the conclusions that will move our world in a positive direction. 

I wholeheartedly endorse Melanie in her quest to be our Island County Commissioner. She will work hard for each and every one of us!

Join me in voting for her!

Letter: Bacon would think globally, act locally as commissioner

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 5:27pm

  • Letters to the Editor

  • Editor,
    The name Melanie Bacon will be on the Aug. 4 ballot for Island County commissioner, District 1, the seat being vacated by Helen Price Johnson. The top two will be on the Nov. 3 ballot.
    Melanie is my choice for this important position, which closely affects our daily lives. She is a good listener, and her varied background experiences place her in the position of readiness. She has worked in Island County government for 10 years and is the current Human Resources director.
