Thompson brings integrity
To the editor,
County commissions in Oregon do really important work, and the stakes are high for smart land use planning, disaster readiness and so much more. Lianne Thompson understands what it means to make Clatsop County economically and socially stronger in the coming years. Voters in South County (District 5) should elect Lianne Thompson because she loves her community and has put in countless hours to make it better.
I worked alongside Lianne while she was an outreach specialist for the tsunami mapping program in Clatsop County last year. Her job with the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries was to promote new tsunami evacuation maps and to help build a culture of tsunami readiness. She strengthened relationships with local partners, from fire chiefs and city/county managers to news media and emergency preparedness advocates.
Lianne brings integrity, pragmatism, and compassion to her work. She would be a team player and an effective representative for the people of Clatsop County.
