Versatile Blake is service-minded
As mayor of Arlington for two terms (2004-2012) I had the pleasure of having Bill on our staff. He worked tirelessly, not only as our natural resources director, but in many other capacities, including permitting, master planning, and transfer of development rights, to name a few. He knows "the big picture" of government from city-county-state-federal.
I have known Bill for most of his life. He was raised with "community service" values. We have evidenced this by the time and support he has given so generously to work with Boy Scouts and other youth on many projects which we all enjoy in the Arlington area.
Bill Blake will bring to this county council position not only essential knowledge of government operations, but experience as a proven problem solver who values everyone's opinion. He will serve our citizens well. My vote will be for Bill Blake, County Council Position 1.
