The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

McClain's final words


October 25, 2018

To The Eagle:

As the campaign season comes to end, I am told this will be the last week the paper will accept letters to the editor. Therefore, I want to take a few minutes to ensure that the record is set straight. Despite all of the mud slinging and smear tactics on my opponent’s part, I ensured that I ran a clean campaign based on facts.

I have stated many times before and I will say it again “I have not asked anyone to write any derogatory letters about my opponent.” Any letters you see of that type are the result of how the writers felt they were treated during their interactions with the incumbent assessor.

Yes, I am in the process of completing the Department of Revenue required appraisal course which will lead to state accreditation once I am in office.

Yes, I am still running as an Independent, I want my obligations to be to the tax payers and citizens of Wahkiakum County only.

I still believe that all tax payer questions should be heard and given a professional, knowledgeable and courteous answer, no matter who they are.

I believe that accurate parcel descriptions and fair/equitable appraisals should be the hallmark of the assessor’s office.

I intend to bring my 20 years of US Navy experience in team leadership, intelligence, attention to detail and common sense to the position of county assessor.

The citizens deserve elected officials that have integrity and are honest in their dealings with everyone. An elected official’s actions and reputation should reflect positively on both the office they hold and Wahkiakum County.

I am grateful to all of my fellow citizens who supported me with friendship and assistance in my campaign for county assessor. Thank you.

I urge everyone to put aside partisan politics and cast their vote for the good of our county. For those who do not know me, ask around the community about me. I have worked hard to establish and maintain a positive reputation in our community and I hope you will take this into consideration while filling out your ballots.

Brian McClain
