Harley Noland will bring new leadership to Marietta
Census figures show us that Washington County and our home County seat of Marietta are losing population, which in turn means a loss of operating funds. As a result we see areas of blight, streets and roads in need of repair, green spaces untended, and failure in our aging infrastructure.
We have an opportunity this fall to elect new leadership in Marietta. I am writing in support of Harley Noland for Mayor. Noland has recognized these problems and has created a long-range plan to address them.
Jobs in the trades pay well, and Noland recognizes that working in partnership with local unions, The Washington County Career Center, and Washington State Community College, we can create a well-trained workforce that will attract employers that pay a living wage to Marietta and Washington County.
