Time for Change on Flathead County Commission

Please consider a change for Flathead County

By Karen Enger

Tim Harmon is running for Flathead County commissioner. I would like to encourage all registered voters to vote for a change. Tim stands for common sense and is completely reachable. I’ve personally worked with Tim at our fairgrounds where he is the maintenance manager. He is a “go-to” guy who will get the job done. Tim has owned and managed his own businesses in the past. He will be a real asset to our county when it comes to standing up and doing the right thing.

My own personal experiences with the current commission has not been positive. The commission claims an open-door policy. Yes, you can get in the door, and you can even sit across from the commissioners at their desks, but don’t expect any of them to talk to you about an issue. More than once I’ve tried. I got, “I’m not going to talk to you about that.” “That’s a personnel issue” or “That’s an HR issue.”

Once, when there were two openings on the Fair Board, three people applied and two current Fair Board members wrote a note of interest for reappointment. According to county policy, the application was to be completed. The gentlemen seeking reappointment did not complete the application process. The deadline had come and gone. When this was pointed out to our commissioners, one would think the incomplete applications would be thrown out. No, our commission extended the deadline. The commission reappointed the same two Fair Board members.

I’m ready for a change. I believe Tim Harmon would have done the right thing in this case. He is a man of his word. He means what he says and says what he means. Please consider a change for Flathead County. Tim Harmon is that change.
