To the editor:
Clean drinking water and internet access are essential for a healthy community. The KPUD manages about 50 water systems and operates 200 miles of fiber optic cable that serve as a “backbone” for internet access in the county and to many Bainbridge Island residents.
The district also tests drinking water monthly and collects rainfall data for the county.
If you enjoy clean drinking water and internet, you definitely need to vote in the Kitsap Public Utilities District Commissioner race.
It’s important that a commissioner is a good steward of taxpayer dollars while also looking to better serve the customers. Nate Andrews has dedicated his career to public education and is a strong candidate for this race. Andrews has successfully served as the Kitsap County Fire Commissioner for the last three years and has over 20 years of service as a Kitsap school teacher and administrator.
Nate Andrews also recognizes that environment and innovation are a top priority, and that data and science should be used to become more efficient and to conserve our water resources.
A vote for Andrews is a vote for conservation and environment sustainability.
