Antone Minthorn: for all the people ... how true.
Over the last several months I have had the privilege to read, learn and actually work side-by-side with this quiet, always methodical man.
What knowledge and wisdom. I have yet to meet a person that has done so much for Eastern Oregon, not only for the Native American but for all of us.
Rebuilding of Cilio Falls housing was a priority of Mr. Minthorn.
He has been the best friend of the fisherman by implementing the return of the Salmon to the Umatilla River.
The Economy of the Port of Umatilla and the Columbia River are no strangers to Antone, moving grain, coal, and introducing irrigation from the Columbia for the farmers (remember Buckets for Buckets?) has been but one item championed by Mr. Minthorn.
Roads, pipes, and electrical infrastructures in place for more growth at the Wildhorse area (Divita, Hotel, Casino, Forest Service, and Cayuse Technologies) this was Antone's vision and it has come to fruition and growing.
The Wallowa Lake project, Antone is already working with all the concerns and working to correct the problems to this beautiful area.
The environment of Hell's Canyon is always under his watchful eye.
Health care and education are Antones biggest concerns. The vision of cyber and new innovations beyond what we see now is what Antone wants in our children's education keeping the history of our land free and pure.
When elected I know Mr. Minthorn can bring unity and good open conversations to get real work done in Salem.
Antone Minthorn will not see business as usual but will be for all the people.
I am very pleased to place my vote for Antone Minthorn. That is all.
