Matthes Congratulates Garrido

Tim Matthes has sent the Kitsap Sun a letter to the editor congratulating Charlotte Garrido, the winner of the tight race for South Kitsap Commisssioner, position 2. The Kitsap County auditor certified the election today. Here is Tim’s letter and the final vote count:

“I previously stated that it’s not over until the last vote is counted. Well, the votes have been counted and the election has been certified. I have fallen short of our goal of becoming the next South Kitsap County Commissioner by less than one and one half percent.

I would like to express my gratitude to all of you who voted for me. I want to thank all of you that spent your time, energy, and money working on this campaign. We may have came up a little short of our goal, but we gave it our best effort. A simple thank you just does not do all your work justice, but it will have to do for now. If any of you are thinking of running for public office I would encourage you to do so because this has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever undertaken.

Congratulations to Charlotte Garrido on her win. We should all say a prayer that she will display great wisdom and strength in all her decisions resulting in a better Kitsap County because of her term in office. I plan to support her and to assist her in keeping her campaign promises which are; balanced decisions, representing all of the county’s residences, a balanced budget, and supporting business in Kitsap County, just to name a few. These ideals and goals are ones that we all can support and work together to accomplish.

Thank You All !

Tim Matthes
