Tom Greene most qualified for sheriff

If you were hiring someone to run a company wouldnt you hire the person with the most background and experience, someone with a passion to serve and do the best for your company and make the hard decisions? A person with vision and a plan to do the most with the budget that can possibly be done? A person that knows the business from bottom to top and has years of experience and knowledge? A person of the greatest integrity, honesty and one who truly cares? If you were hiring a police chief, would you want someone who had years of experience in all phases of Law Enforcement from the bottom to the top? A person who is highly respected and admired by his or her peers, whose honesty and integrity are impeccable and who cares deeply about the safety of those he would serve? If you said yes to either of the above situations then you need to vote for Tom Greene as your next Sheriff. His competitors cannot come close to Toms qualifications or experience. Go to his Web site and read his biography and see who is supporting him, read about his life, what he stands for and you will also see his passion to serve you as your next Sheriff. It only takes a moment for such a critical decision. http://www.greeneforsheriff.org .

Thank you Stillaguamish Tribe

For the past 91 years, the Snohomish County Chapter of the American Red Cross has been building on a legacy of neighbors helping neighbors. Thanks to the ongoing financial support received from a wide representation of county benefactors, the chapter continues to be a valued resource to the Snohomish County community in times of disaster. Latest to join our family of Red Cross major donors is the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians, based in Arlington.
Recently, Stillaguamish tribal leaders Eddie Goodridge, Jr. and Shawn Yanity presented the chapter with a gift designated for use in our disaster relief work throughout the county. We are grateful to the Tribe for its outreach and spirit of humanitarianism in helping Red Cross assist those Snohomish County residents whose lives are touched by disaster.
The Stillaguamish Tribes generous gift will provide direct financial assistance to families displaced by fire, flood or other natural or man-made disasters. Our disaster action teams are trained and ready to respond to house and apartment fires and other local emergencies 24/7, and typically are called out an average of every 2-3 days. When they respond to a family whose immediate needs include shelter, food and clothing, funds from this gift will help to meet those needs.
While our chapter continues to evolve to meet new challenges, the need to prepare for disasters will never change, nor will our feelings of gratitude for the support of all of our donors. We want to thank the Stillaguamish Tribe and all donors for making a difference in the lives of so many.
When you help Red Cross, you help Snohomish County.
