WHY I'M RUNNING: Hi! My name is Stephanie Newton — and I am excited to announce my candidacy for Linn County Commissioner — Position 1. Since launching my campaign, I have had the opportunity to speak with fellow Linn County residents in Cascadia, Sweet Home, Lebanon, Albany — and everywhere in between. In each of these conversations — I began to notice a common theme. Linn County residents don’t care about partisan labels. We want public servants who can work together to get things done — Representatives with common sense, that can find common ground, and work together for the common good. That’s exactly what I’ve done throughout my professional career and what I will do when elected to the Linn County Board of Commissioners. Here in Linn County, we need people with fresh perspectives to address some of our biggest challenges, including: • Building an economy that works for everyone • Promoting affordable housing • Planning for smart growth • Improving public safety • Repairing and building roadways, • Providing better public health services and • Protecting farms and the natural resources that make Linn County such a spectacular place to live and raise a family.
I care deeply about our community and would be honored to serve Linn County as a member of its Board of County Commissioners. For campaign updates and to get involved, be sure to visit my website --www.stephnewton.com
