Re: Campaign Announcement

Carol Kavanaugh will be running for the seat of Douglas County Commissioner District 1 currently held by Ken Stanton.

Carol moved to the Wenatchee area in 1977 after acquiring her Masters degree from Western Washington University. Her achievements include the following:

1)   Member of the Douglas County Regional Planning Commission 2006 – present.

2)   Chairperson of the Douglas County Regional Planning Commission 2008 – present.

3)   President Elect of the North Central Washington Association of Realtors.

4)   Member of the Board of Directors for the North Central Washington Association of Realtors 2006 – present

5)   Member of the Board of Directors for the Washington Association of Realtors 2007 – present.

While raising her children Erin and Eddy, Carol was very active in the Eastmont Public School system chairing and coordinating multiple events.

After many months of consideration and encouragement from family, friends and business associates, Carol decided to run for Douglas County Commissioner. She feels that Douglas County needs leadership. “We need leaders who demonstrate respect for the process and who take responsibility for decisions made. We need to restore citizen confidence and trust in the process. We may not agree on every issue, but the citizens of Douglas County will know that their voices were heard and their input mattered.”

Carol’s campaign is based on the philosophy that the long-time culture of “no” needs to be replaced with a culture of “how can we help you accomplish your goals and visions.” Her goal is to create a “County of Opportunity” and address “excessive and burdensome regulation”.

“There is so much talent, so many hard workers, and so many people with good ideas and strong principals in Douglas County. People must begin to step up and offer themselves as positive alternatives to elected officials who have forgotten the people who elected them. It has never been an ambition of mine to run for elected office, but in doing so I hope to set an example for others.”
