Philip Cryar - District 1 - Republican
Yes, there have been many life experiences that I have overcome and learned from that I feel have added to my qualifications as a commissioner. Additionally, I have completed numerous large jobs around the county with my marine construction business, and those jobs have given me an extensive knowledge of the places in our community, the citizens of our community, and the needs of our community.

William "Boots" McCormick - District 1 - Republican
I have a strong sense of fair play and following the rules. Thirty years of law enforcement has trained me to make reasonable decisions. Sometimes my decisions did not make me popular. I have served as an elected official an through that service I received a lot of in house training and just pure old fashion on the job training. At the city level, I have had to deal with and make decisions along the lines of issues the county is facing, just on a smaller scale. I think this above all else puts me in a position to hit the ground running a little faster than the other candidates.

Dr. Carolynn Zonia - District 5 - Democrat
As an Emergency Physician, I have the knowledge, the background and the history of working to improve health and quality of life. I will be a new voice and new vision with new Leadership for the Board. Our County Board has been dominated by former police and small business owners. They have a record of consistently voting against the things that would protect our water, limit development, and improve quality of life. I appreciate the work that they have done, but I think we need to add someone different to the Board. I’m asking for your vote on November 3rd. Thank you!
