Which is more important: Seat time spent in meetings or time spent preparing for meetings? One is very visible to the public while the other may not be.
Several letters in support of challengers have implied that one or more current county commissioners are not earning their pay. Are the writers referring only to seat time in meetings? If so then I guess the numerous occasions I've observed Perry Dozier at the gas station, on the street or at his boys' activities talking to county residents about their individual concerns don't count.
When conversing with Perry I've found him to be a good listener as well as current, knowledgeable and concerned with the well-being of Walla Walla County.
I've never seen him refuse to talk with anyone concerning our county. Perry has my support based on personal experience and observation.
