Experience counts for Arlington City Council | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

There are several very important choices on the general election ballot this year that need special consideration. One of them is for the “at-large position” for Arlington City Council.

There are several very important choices on the general election ballot this year that need special consideration.  One of them is for the “at-large position” for Arlington City Council.

The candidate of choice should be Jim Rankin.  Jim brings the most experience with him from a career of working with volunteer as well as paid fire department personnel and EMS staff.

Jim was a valuable leader in the development of the Emergency Preparedness Partnership plan for the Arlington School District, Cascade Valley Hospital and the city of Arlington.  This is how our tax money is saved from duplicate programs.

His knowledge of how city departments often struggle with budget constraints is invaluable. This Arlington City Council position should not be a “learn-as-you-go” position.  Jim is not that kind of a candidate.

Jim is the best choice and will serve the citizens of Arlington with dedication, energy and time that we all deserve from our Council members.

Please vote for Jim Rankin.

George Boulton
