EDITOR’S NOTE: The May 18th ballot features dozens of opportunities to serve your community on local boards for our schools, ports, transportation district, recreation districts, water districts, fire districts and more. There is not a voters pamphlet for a primary/special election, therefore the Pioneer provides this opportunity for candidates to tell voters about themselves and the position they are seeking, even if running unopposed.
Tillamook County Pioneer CANDIDATE’S STATEMENT – 5 minute “why we should vote for you” pitch; include information about why you are running for the position and your TOP 3 most-important-issues facing the board/organization you wish to serve on.
MEET THE CANDIDATE: Matt Kelly, Tillamook County Emergency Communications District 911 Director, Position #3
I’m running for Position 3 on the Tillamook County Emergency Communication District Board. As a former 911 dispatcher, firefighter, and current law enforcement officer I understand how important the 911 system is to all of us. I want to be a part of helping maintain the quality of service that 911 is and has provided to the citizens and visitors of Tillamook County.
911 dispatchers are the first, “First Responders”. They are the voice on the phone in your time need and will use all their skills and abilities to ensure you receive the appropriate help.
I will do my best to ensure 911 provides the service that Tillamook County needs.
Thank you for your support.
