Claffey: Sammel is a leader and a connector

I support Laura McAndrews Sammel.

It didn’t take long for Laura to make a positive impression on me. Within the first few weeks after taking over the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, Laura was everywhere. She met with city and county officials, business owners, and community leaders, most coming away with the sense that she truly cared about their needs and objectives.

As the months and years passed, that motivation never wavered. Just recently she joined a Tourism Improvement District board meeting with a great idea, a plan to execute, and the confidence to field difficult questions without losing sight of her mission.

No one can argue that she isn’t tapped into the challenges facing Lake County. She has been a tireless advocate for small business, she has a clear commitment to increasing and improving housing options, and her human resources background will no doubt help the board as they tackle the issues around recruiting and retention of county staff.

I support Laura because I know her character, her work ethic, and her desire to make Lake County a better place. Those qualities shine through in everything she takes on, county supervisor included. She will be a superb advocate for District 4 and has already forged substantial relationships across the county that can’t easily be replicated.

David Claffey is a member of the Clearlake City Council. He lives in Clearlake, California.
