Max Mania has earned my support for election to the Benton County commission. I know three of the other four commissioner candidates fairly well. I respect them and consider them friends. But, without hesitation, I am sticking with Max.

I have watched Max closely for the past year as he met with folks in their communities across the county to understand their issues. This is a candidate who actively listens, learns, and is anxious to work for us.

Max also attended nearly every Benton County commission meeting over the past year. He has closely studied the commission’s work and the challenges the county faces. He is ready to go to work.

Check out Max’s endorsements. This is a solid progressive and independent candidate who is not afraid to challenge the established political system.

Max has genuine concern for the less privileged among us. His plans to protect renters, build community partnerships, and fight climate change locally are forthright and sound. And his experience serving on a City Council, managing municipal budgets, is sure to keep him grounded in fiscal reality.

Max has a well-articulated platform which you can read at his web site, He has also shared his positions and plans for positive change at three candidate forums. I hope the Gazette-Times will cover the future county commissioner panels more fully.

Please join me in voting for Max Mania for Benton County commissioner!
