I am writing to support Chris Thomas for PUD Commissioner District 1.
Chris is a smart, thoughtful, hard working and creative individual who will make good decisions to keep our PUD working for us. Chris will keep the public in our Public Utility District.
I worked with Chris for more than eight years while he served on the Montesano City Council and I was both a councilmember and mayor. Chris cared deeply about our city and its citizens. He always looked first for how our decisions would affect our citizens and what would be best for our city. Chris was creative in developing solutions to a wide variety of issues. He also brings strong analytical skills to problem solving.
Chris knows Grays Harbor. Besides serving on the city council Chris was the chairman of the Grays Harbor Council of Governments. In that role he worked on issues across all of Grays Harbor. He is aware of how our community works and what the key issues are. He can hit the ground running because he is already familiar with the issues and has a proven ability to work the other government leaders. Chris has also been active in other aspects of the community such as Boy Scouts, Kiwanis and the Montesano Parent Teachers Organization.
If you are looking for someone who cares about how the PUD affects your life and who will make decisions with your best interests at heart it would be difficult to find a better candidate than Chris Thomas.
