Judy Bardin’s skills make good fit for City Council

I am supporting Judy Bardin for Olympia City Council, Position 2. I’ve known Judy for many years, and her dedication to the public interest is unmatched. She works hard, studies issues, and makes reasoned decisions.

Judy is a former nurse, and recently retired epidemiologist for the state Department of Health. Her professional career in public health will be an excellent addition to the city. She has volunteered for many local organizations, bringing skill, leadership, integrity, and respect to the tasks. She is a strong advocate for open government – not the kind of hide-behind-the-lawyer secrecy we’ve seen in recent years. We are lucky to have someone with Bardin’s experience and commitment willing to serve our community.
