"I believe people have the power to make a difference. Our future depends on a strong economy, a healthy environment and local people working together. As your County Commissioner these are my priorities—for a Kitsap County we can be proud of!"

“Charlotte Garrido is a tireless champion for Kitsap County. As County Commissioner, Charlotte has led the charge on workforce development, protecting our most valued natural resources, and modernizing local government to improve efficiency and citizen access. I am honored to partner with Charlotte on these initiatives here in Kitsap County and in Washington, D.C. and proud to support her campaign for reelection.” Congressman Derek Kilmer

Dear Friends,
Kitsap County is one of the most beautiful places in the world.  We must maintain our quality of life and also assure that future generations can enjoy environmental, economic, and community benefits.

CC 500W.fwI have productively served Kitsap County for more than thirty-five years – as an active citizen, a contributing professional, and an elected leader.  My hands-on experience gives me an understanding of the leadership needed to successfully accomplish the vital tasks required of a county commissioner.

That is why I am running for re-election as your county commissioner.

I will continue to promote the following priorities:

  • Foster the success of locally owned businesses; the engine of a strong economy.
  • Protect natural resources and systems.
  • Increase your opportunities to be heard by your Kitsap County elected officials.
  • Introduce innovative ways to carry out the County mission “to protect and promote the safety, health and welfare of our citizens in an efficient, accessible and effective manner.”

I’m proud of accomplishments made on your behalf, and with your help we will do more.  Representing Kitsap citizens, I spearheaded the creation of local jobs through workforce development.  Kitsap County installed a state-of-the-art facility in Manchester that filters storm water to 91% purity before it reaches Puget Sound.  On my watch the Board of Commissioners encouraged lean process improvement to streamline county services, resulting in government cost efficiencies.  And, we introduced a program to address issues of substance abuse and mental health..

I have the experience, knowledge and heart to take on the challenges facing us, and hope I can count on your support.  Your voice is important to the success of this campaign, and there is much to do.  Together, we can truly make a positive difference in our quality of life in Kitsap County.  If you can support our campaign by volunteering, endorsing, or contributing, you will be repaid with my commitment to promote and deliver responsible and responsive county government.

THANK YOU for your partnership and support.

Charlotte Garrido
