Port Townsend since 1969, Sequim since 2004.
I am what you might call a local.
Marc Titterness mostly grew up in the Midwest.
The past 50 years, I have seen countless changes here.
Mostly not improvements.
Instead of open windows and unlocked doors, we have neighborhood watch and security cameras.
Parks had riskier, but more fun, equipment; now they’re safe, but unfortunately, can have needles and crime.
Our once clean bodies of water are all too frequently affected by bacteria, algae, and pollution; and often require permission to access.
Don’t get me started about the roads and potholes.
I have known Marc since 1995.
He spent time here, growing up; lived local as a young adult.
He moved back to the Midwest, got married, told his wife about the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and she couldn’t imagine.
They had children, owned a small business, and wanted a better world.
He became involved in law enforcement.
They wanted their kids to grow up without gangs, and worse, so they moved back here, a decade ago.
In every measure I’ve seen, he’s proven to be a capable, thoughtful, dependable, and hard-working friend, husband, and father.
A true credit to any community, and law enforcement.
He sees the changes here, and wants to make a difference.
But, sure, dismiss him because he’s not local.
Pollution won’t magically stop, and potholes won’t disappear, but he absolutely will make our roads, and our county, a much safer place to be.
Titterness for sheriff, says it all.
