Re-Elect Mary Starrett for Yamhill County Commissioner

I’m Mary Starrett, and I’m running for re-election as Yamhill County Commissioner, Position #3.

                                                                              HOLDING THE LINE ON SPENDING STARTS WITH ME                                                                   


I pledged to oppose spending for non-essential expenditures and signed the Taxpayers Association of Oregon Pledge.I have opposed additional taxes and proposed a reduction in property taxes as well as returning proceeds exceeding  back taxes on tax-foreclosed properties to the homeowner.

I have opposed spending tax dollars on the Yamhelas Westsider Trail- an expensive project that has cost the county hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours of staff time, with no estimate for the cost of the project and no assurance that farm practices won’t be adversely impacted.

Twice I turned down a pay raise.

Neither will I accept a pay raise during my second term of office.

Yamhill County can and should be home to businesses and industries looking for a ready work force, a business-friendly climate and a break from oppressive government taxes and regulations.Together we can work to make Yamhill County an economically stable and vibrant place to live.

Yamhill County can serve as a model for other counties by safeguarding property rights, individual liberties and promoting fiscal restraint.

Please join me in this effort to continue to advocate for a financially solvent Yamhill County and support the  programs and services that help our community.
