Welcome.  I’m glad you dropped by to learn more.  We have a great team, clear vision and a goal.

We will make Island County stronger, healthier and a place of civility and respect.

People always ask why now?  Why are you running?  I retired a couple of years ago from my career in social work.  We sailed, traveled the National Parks of the West, visited family and got involved in our community.  I like working so I took a part time job working to support a local environmental organization and I volunteered to be on local boards, advocating for health and basic needs and services.  Perfect life.  Lucky woman.  Not everyone can say that.  My life’s call has been to work for fairness and compassion, so all have opportunities for a good life.  We all thrive when we all thrive.

I chose to act on my values when friends, neighbors and groups where I was working asked me to consider running for office.  I chose to stand up and work for the issues I believe in.  I will work to respect and listen to constituents, even when we may disagree.  I will represent everyone in my community, regardless of political affiliation or personal views.  I will work to assure the basic services and needs of residents are our first priority.  I will give Camano and North Whidbey better representation and connection to Island County government.  I will work to connect the dots between local, state and national government-finding opportunities and advocating for our communities. I know I can make a difference for stronger families and healthy communities.

I believe in Island County.  I see it at work every day in the professionals working in county government, in the businesses and organizations that serve us, in the entrepreneurs, artists and farmers drawn to this place, and in the amazing work of volunteers who put in thousands of hours to make our home a great place. 

So let’s do this…join me in this journey.  Check out this website often, “like” our facebook page at “Committee to Elect Janet St Clair” and follow me on Instagram…or better yet, contact us and we’ll help you get involved.  I look forward to being your next County Commissioner for District Three.
