Please join me in supporting Susan Byrnes for York County commissioner. Susan has the experience, intelligence and temperament necessary to serve as an outstanding commissioner.

As a life-long resident of York County, she has repeatedly demonstrated dedication to making our community a great place to live. Susan clearly understands problems need to be met, fixed and ideally prevented at their cause rather than in a more costly and inefficient "after-the-fact" manner. More importantly, Susan has proven she has the capability of putting this understanding into action for the betterment of our entire community.

A shining example of Susan's work is the Byrnes Health Education Center.

Susan saw a need to improve the poor quality of health suffered by a large percentage of York's population. Rather than merely talking about it, Susan scrutinized a needs assessment and viability study done on the state of health in York County. After which, she conquered the massive task of pulling together community resources to create a state-of-the-art facility that educates people of all ages about healthy lifestyle choices.

We have the opportunity to vote for a well-qualified woman of integrity with a proven record of public service. Please vote Susan Byrnes on Nov. 3.
