Island County Commissioner
“As a retired Navy Combat Aircrewman, corporate businessman, and involved citizen, I am running for Commissioner to bring the people’s perspective back to Island County. To be that buffer between BIG Government and us. To push back when the narrative does not fit our county!"
- Tim Hazelo
Island County Commissioner District 3 encompasses North Whidbey and Camano Island.
LAW & ORDER;
As your commissioner, public safety and protecting individuals’ rights are a top priority. I will ensure our Law Enforcement Officers receive the funding, training, and resources they need. Island County residents deserve to feel safe at home, play and work.
HOMELESSNESS & ADDICTION;
The big-government approach we have witnessed in King County does not work. I will advocate utilizing better policies here, which will address the root causes of homelessness. Services must demand measurable results providing accountability to taxpayers who are the ones financing the needed recovery and housing programs.
PROTECT SUSTAINABLE RURAL LIVING:
Island County is made up of a diverse population. I will work to ensure our community is open and welcoming to all. Working towards our common goals for a safe, stronger, independent and self-sustaining rural lifestyle will help all who live here enjoy a more prosperous lifestyle. Our roadside stands and local farms are essential to the lifestyle we love!
NO NEW TAXES and Fiscal responsibility:
The county budget is out of hand! For instance, approving the hiring of a county administrator while other departments struggle, to create programs using temporary federal funds that most likely won’t be here to maintain the programs or expenses in the future. We have some work to do. I will find and propose ways to be more proficient and responsible with our money rather than ask for more! I will propose to reverse any and all 1/10th of 1 percent tax increases that have been done without a vote of the people!
Local government affects us the most. While often we focus mostly on national or state politics, the decisions made at the county level impact our lives more. As your commissioner, I will strive to make a positive impact by enacting policies that protect and enhance lives on Island County:
☑ SUPPORT LAW & ORDER
☑ FISCAL RESPOSIBILITY AND ECCONOMY
☑ ADDRESS HOMELESSNESS & ADDICTION
☑ PROTECT SUSTAINABLE RURAL LIVING
☑ SUPPORT OUR NAVY & NAS WHIDBEY
