LETTER: Ready to serve as Washington County Commissioner in District 2

To the Editor:

It has been an honor to serve the residents of Woodbury on the city council since 2006. As my third term in elected office draws to a close, I am proud of the work I have accomplished and the trust Woodbury residents and business owners have conferred in me to make sound decisions on their behalf. I pledge to deliver core services in a cost-effective manner and will continue to be a good steward of the tax dollar if elected. I bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the seat, based on 12 years of elected office.

I know the needs of Oakdale and Woodbury first-hand with ongoing concerns about preserving groundwater and maintaining or improving surface water quality a top priority. I have a fiscally constrained approach to government budgeting that I will bring to the county board. I understand complex budgets supported by a property tax levy. I have an open door policy and value input from taxpayers and the business community. I have worked on issues related to housing and redevelopment in Woodbury, and city CDBG funds and economic development similar to Washington County that will allow a seamless transition to the county board.

I hope I can count on your vote. I will lead effectively and listen to the residents of all the communities in this district. The district contains different and unique communities and I would respect these differences.

Julie Ohs, Washington County Board District 2 candidate - Woodbury
