Oak Harbor, Washington – Lucas Yonkman, a lifelong Oak Harbor resident, disabled veteran, and local businessman has announced his candidacy for Position 4 on the Oak Harbor City Council. Yonkman, in announcing his candidacy, has also announced the platform on which he is running and his reasons for doing so: “I want to bring the voice of Oak Harbor’s citizens back to the city council, to take a good look at our expenses and find ways to make it more affordable to live in our great city, and above all to ensure transparency, honesty, and accountability in our City Government”.
“While I appreciate the service and sacrifice of current and past councils, I see the need for change. It is time to shift our priorities from the needs of a few to the needs of all. We must ensure the fair and unbiased representation of all Oak Harbor’s Citizens, not just some”, Yonkman said.
Yonkman is putting together his campaign team and with continued support hopes to reach the citizens of Oak Harbor with this message. “Public officeholders must remember who elected them and what they were put into office to accomplish. Our elected officials should constantly seek out the input of The People on matters affecting their city because the voice of the people is the most important part of our great republic. I feel that voice has been lost in Oak Harbor, please join me in bringing it back!”
