I wanted to write to express my concerns about the race for Port of Centralia commissioner. This position requires someone who is a champion of efficient government, fair taxes and the effective use of public funds.
Kyle Markstrom has these qualities.
As a business leader, he has had to operate in the harsh world of real accountability, red tape and suffocating taxes. I trust him to have a healthy distrust of the government and its ability to micromanage and destroy.
He knows that people cannot just keep being asked to pay higher taxes as the government’s appetite grows without any limits.
I’m concerned that his opponent, as a lifelong public employee, doesn’t have a full grasp of these values.
Vote Kyle Markstrom for port commissioner to assure responsible government and careful use of property taxes.
