The mission of Represent Okanogan County – ROC is to
advance the transparency,
of Okanogan County’s elected leadership.
ROC is a non-profit organization recognized for its focus on the elected leadership Okanogan County and good county governance. It uses research, communication, leadership development, and voter registration to inform and engage citizens’ ability to affect change. ROC values fact-based knowledge, common sense, inclusiveness and non-confrontation.
ROC is nonpartisan and does not represent any political party.
Last year using county-wide outreach, we enlisted hundreds of supporters to effect county governance. We educated citizens and registered voters. Through the results of a targeted recruitment effort, six new county commissioner candidates, three in each district, registered to run for office. The outcome was two new elected commissioners in November.
Previously county leadership spent time criticizing state and federal governments, engaging in lawsuits against the county’s interests, making illegal decisions that were later rescinded, and denying scientific information. Problems such as the increase in wildfires, limited water supply, and economic uncertainty call for well-informed leaders that are committed to the citizen’s welfare and their involvement and participation.
Good governance work is ongoing. A third commissioner will be elected in 2018. No more back door deals. We want transparency, accountability and a say in the big issues before Okanogan County.
Make your voice heard and build the county’s future. Be active! Join ROC.
