Statement
"As this is my first venture into politics, I consider myself a conservative Democrat. I am not running "against" anyone. I am running "for" something. As your County Commissioner, I will be honest, hardworking, and will keep you informed of the issues and how they affect the people of District 5. I would appreciate your vote in November!"

Comments
Patrick Campbell's race is an important one for more than one reason. Of course, his victory puts Democrats in a stronger majority on the Board, but the defeat of Wurtzel and his unconstitutional proposals which threaten the already cash-strapped County with lawsuits and national ridicule make the battle over this district especially critical.

Opposing Candidate Information
Pat will be running against Republican incumbent Patrick Wurtzel in the general election.
