Mad about Melissa!

Print Article

I am writing to tell everyone to vote for Melissa O’Connell.

I have known her for over twenty years, at first as a co-worker, then as a friend. She has a smile that welcomes everyone, a sense of humor that would make a statue smile and a spine of steel that allows her to stand up not only for herself, but any others who may need it.

Melissa has worked for Shoshone County for over a decade in several different departments. Melissa is dependable and devoted, which has made her a valued employee.

She didn’t walk in the front door and get put all the way to the top. She has done her time as entry level worker bee, proved her worth and patience, and is now asking for your support. Her willingness to do a variety of jobs big or small show her dedication to the county.

We have a chance to elect an official that is truly here to do the best she can for Shoshone County.

She has kept on the campaign despite some ethical shenanigans with the opposing party, still smiling, still hopeful for the future of Shoshone County.

Please everyone vote O’Connell for us all.

Bonnie Merrick,

Kingston
