Barbara Boyer values people over politics

Friends & neighbors — I have been registered as an unaffiliated, independent voter for over a decade now. Why? My voter registration is just one part of my choice to value people over politics.

I have served as a Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) director since 2004 and SWCD chair since 2008. This is a non-partisan elected position that serves farmers and landowners throughout our district. As SWCD chair, I work daily with people from across the political spectrum to effectively fulfill our mission. I oversee large budgets, approve contracts, navigate conflicts, initiate projects, and always keep my focus on people and real outcomes.

I have chosen to be free from the constraints of politics so I can keep that important focus: People. Outcomes. There are no “sides” to me; we are in this together.

“Representation” is one of my key values as a candidate. As your future Yamhill County Commissioner, I will dedicate myself to listening to all voices in our community.

Especially as we move through and beyond the current COVID-19 crisis and its economic ramifications, Yamhill County needs leaders who have a positive, people-focused outlook. We need leaders who have extensive real-world experience working with other elected officials, boards, and everyday citizens to Get Things DONE. We need leaders who are deeply committed to our community. We need leaders who are willing to think well beyond partisan politics and innovate.

I am ready.

Looking forward, Barbara
