Keeping Kitsap Great

Words cannot adequately express my sincere thanks to the community for your support.  I am humbled by the opportunity to build upon my service as County Commissioner and to work hard at maintaining your trust.

I deeply appreciate the conversations I’ve had with many of you.  I remain committed to listening and learning from the many voices that help keep Kitsap great.

I will continue to be a voice for achieving a sustainable level of programs within the revenues received, while focusing on providing service to the community.  It will be important to work with other jurisdictions to address duplication of efforts and costs, while implementing new technologies that will make basic county services available from the comfort of your own home.

Another focus of mine as Commissioner is to be mindful of how the County can support the various business sectors that contribute to our local economy and help create jobs.  Economic recovery, I believe, will be born upon the ingenuity of small business owners in our area.  Our role is to support them.

Now that the 2012 election is certified, this website will mostly be taken down as the content will continue to age. If you have an issue or concern, please contact me through my Kitsap county email at: rgelder@co.kitsap.wa.us  I look forward to serving you.

Thank you for your support.

All the best,
