Campaign for Re-Election of Dan McDonald

It is our pleasure to announce the campaign for re-election of Dan McDonald.

mcdonaldDan McDonald is unique in today’s political environment where so few candidates have the ability or integrity to deliver on the promises they make.

In 2016, Dan campaigned on responsible, business-oriented management of the County’s budget and assets, and bringing a cultural change to local government oriented on customer service and supervisory responsibility.


Since taking office, he has delivered that and more. He has been instrumental in:

  • Reducing the County’s budget by almost eight million dollars.
  • Reducing the number of department heads, saving approximately $250,000 yearly.
  • Moving the County into self-insured status, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  • Re-tasking Road and Bridge to maintain the investment in county roads.
  • Creating a procurement/project manager position to take advantage of collective purchasing. To date this position has saved the County $600.000.
  • Pushing a more customer-friendly profile for all County employees when dealing with the public.

Promises kept and proven performance is the theme of McDonald’s campaign and clearly he has already exceeded his promises during his first term as commissioner.

Please join Dan at his Campaign Kick-Off, Monday, February 26, 4 to 8 PM at Second Avenue Pizza. Come and meet Dan to learn more about his accomplishments in office and to share your ideas for even more improvements in the future.

  1. I also have a simple question: why is Dan McDonald pro-Newport Smelter?
    When people raise concerns about it with him, this is the type of response they get “When I presented Dan McDonald my concerns I got more then a form letter, I got “sell your house, the market is hot now”. (Posted on the CANNS Facebook page). That seems to be one of the nicer ways he has responded. So, even if this fellow did all these things he lists, treating people like they are crap seems to be the trend of the day from politicians, and though I voted for him last time, because of this poor attitude, I will not this time. It isn’t only left wingers who care about this “proposed” Smelter, I am more conservative than most Republicans will ever be, and I don’t want this smelter downwind from my children. All you have to do is research what happens when a Smelter goes into an area and you would not want this in your back yard. I also find it interesting that another commissioner is on the Hi-Test executive board – isn’t that handy when it comes to votes or support for the smelter.

    I won’t vote for this dude, my wife and friends aren’t voting for him, and I am going to try and pass this along to as many people as I can – do not vote for Dan. Period. Better to get a Republicrat or a full Democrat than Dan.
    I guess I could always sell my house because the market is “hot”.

  2. Simple question; Why would a person claiming republican partisanship want to derail the trend of responsible management Dan McDonald has followed?
