Karen Bowerman for Clark County, WA Council District 3

To the Voters of Clark County,

As a six term Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives (1972-1984), I am delighted to endorse Karen Bowerman for the Clark County Council.

I have known Karen for almost 20 years. I served on the Advisory Board of the School of Business when she was Dean of the School at Cal State San Bernardino.

In my opinion, integrity is an issue basic to the policies (and I know this is important to you) and activities of every public servant. Integrity is the number one requirement not only for the office holder but for his/her staff and all those who function in his/her behalf. And how do we define integrity?

First of all integrity is an uncompromising respect for the Truth. It is keeping your word whatever the circumstances. It is the foundation of a Code of Ethics, a set of high principles.

It is fair play. It is the practice of across-the-board morality. It is sidestepping of unfair advantage. It is discretion. It is the understanding of different viewpoints, different opinions. It is trust where trust is deserved.

It is the studied avoidance of conflict of interest and any appearance of conflict of interest.
Of gossip. Of the “cheap shot.”

It is Loyalty – being faithful to one’s family and friends and associates. In politics it is the strict keeping of faith with constituents, representing with maximum effectiveness, recognizing their needs and aspirations and working to the limits of one’s ability in their interests.

And, of course, it is a burning meaningful patriotism.

That to me is integrity. That to me is what you get with Karen Bowerman …. Karen epitomizes what I have just described.
