VANCOUVER, Wash. – Clark County Freeholder and community advocate Temple Lentz announced today that she will seek appointment to the open seat on the Clark County Board of Commissioners.
Lentz was elected to the Board of Freeholders last November, and is working with 14 others to draft a new county charter that will build a stronger infrastructure for Clark County. She has lived in Vancouver’s Rose Village neighborhood since 2008, serves on multiple boards and committees, and is actively engaged with activities and organizations throughout Clark County.
A writer and communications professional, Lentz is a business owner who understands the need for a strong county government that serves its constituents with sound policies and a sensible, balanced budget. She served on the City of Vancouver’s Charter Review Committee, is a governing board member of Arts of Clark County and the Vancouver Food Co-op, and is a graduate and past board member of Leadership Clark County.
Lentz is the author of The (Not Quite) Daily ‘Couve, a satirical blog that pokes fun at local politics and politicians, and is the host of the live talk show, Hello Vancouver!
“I am connected to and committed to this community,” said Lentz. “As a resident, a volunteer, a Freeholder, and now as a candidate for this appointment, I work with others every day to make our home a better place.”
Clark County is changing, and so is the role of county commissioner, said Lentz. “Citizens are demanding leadership that is more nimble, more accountable, and prepared to take us forward. I am excited about the changes Freeholders will be presenting to the voters in November. Having been directly involved in creating the new charter, I will be well-positioned to help implement the plan for a more effective, more responsive county government.”
