Yesterday, Mike Neville formally announced that he will be a candidate in 2007 for the GOP nomination for Washington County Commissioner. Today's O-R has the story.
I've known Mike since 1998 when I covered Peters Township Council as a newspaper reporter. When I moved into politics in 2002, Mike became a supporter of mine -- working many, many hours outside the polls for me during all three of my bids for the State House.
I think Mike would be an excellent commissioner. He's the kind of person who would not tolerate delays in important county projects and would be a strong fiscal conservative on budget matters. I think he also would be incredibly responsive to the needs of the county's citizens.
