MEET TIM HAZELO
As an American who wants the best for his Family, Country, and District, I am concerned about the direction of our County and State, and Nation.
Being a history buff for years, a member of our military, and an involved citizen, my love for our country is the driving force to protect our freedoms, Rights as our forefathers envisioned for all Americans.
Family & Community
I was brought up in a single-parent household in a small town in Dewitt Michigan. With both grandparents who served in WWII, an uncle in Vietnam, and my mother being an officer in our local fire department and a locally elected county official, patriotism and respect were instilled in our family at a young age.
As a sophomore in high school, I was a member of the Sea Cadets and in July of 1987, I joined the United States Navy where I served this country for 20 years. My career took me around the world and I served in multiple theaters from the first Gulf War to modern-day Afghanistan to counter-narcotics operations in South and Central America.
My wife and I met in high school and together we have 3 sons and 3 grandsons. 26 years ago the navy brought us to Whidbey island and we fell in love with the area and have been here ever since. We have a small farm in Island County where we raise farm animals from cows to chickens. We enjoy gardening, boating, fishing, hiking, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest.
We have all seen the chaos in Washington DC. The disastrous effects of Woke politically correct cities and counties here in WA state. The seemingly unfettered homeless crises, the ignoring of mental health issues, the high cost of limited housing, the disaster that is our medical system here in Island County, ETC
As citizens of the greatest country on earth, my utmost goal is to uphold the Constitution that our brave forefathers fought and founded America on. No other country has such a document and our Bill of Rights is the envy of all other nations. Having traveled extensively, I have seen this first hand. I don't just say I will fight for my country, as a navy veteran, I volunteered to do so. I will continue that fight in Island County. Our nation's policies must follow the Constitution, reflect smaller government and the freedoms we hold dear. We will restart that process here at the local county level and build upon it!
