Letter to the editor from Wayne McColley

Dear Editor:

I enjoy challenges and enjoy studying things and coming up with solutions.

I first ran for County Commissioner 12 years ago. In 1997, my oldest daughter Tammy, age 27, died in a mysterious house fire. She had two daughters, 3 and 4 years old. We had much frustration with the county over her death and the care of our granddaughters. I was told to talk to your county commissioners. Some tried to help and others turned a deaf ear. Our granddaughters came to live with us in 2003 and we received legal custody the next year. Everyone that I was frustrated with in the county is no longer there. I no longer have an agenda about this.

Through this process I gained a lot of knowledge about the Sherriff's Office, Human Services, child protection, the guardian ad litem program, foster care, the court system, etc. Being County Commissioner became one of my goals in life. What I have been through has made me a much more compassionate person. It has given me the desire to help others.

If elected County Commissioner, my first goal will be to take the time to understand every department. I want to ride in a Sherriff's car on patrol, to ride in a snowplow, etc. My goal will be to fully understand every department so I can make better decisions.

My motto will always stay the same: Have Dodge County Government Do More With Less.

Your vote will be greatly appreciated.
