Many benefits


To the Editor:

Mike Richards has gone on the record during candidate nights as being opposed to seeking state and federal funding and prefers to use savings for infrastructure projects. In the comparison article of Sauter and Richards for Klickitat County Commissioner (Oct. 19, 2014), Richards stated, “The county budget has exploded without a comparable benefit to the citizens of Klickitat County.” He neglected to state an explanation for this.

The budget increases in 2012 and 2013 occurred in the capital projects portion of the budget. Our commissioners built the new 911 radio system and the Dallesport Airport Business Park. They also upgraded the Dallesport Water System and made infrastructure improvements at the Port of Klickitat, in Bingen,for the Insitu campus. These projects were all accomplished without any additional taxation or bond requests and definitely provide “comparable benefits to the citizens of Klickitat County.”
