I'm trying to get the date for this story that ran in the Sun Herald family of papers. When I get it perhaps I can create a link to the story by Steve Smith. The sentence that leads the quote is a response to my emphasis on the need for the county to do better on regional matters. I'm not arguing that we are doing such a bad job now, I just think we need to do more and that I will bring a lot of regional expertise to the Commission.
It was the penultimate sentence that caught a supporter's eye and I didn't want to include it out of context.
