The Press Citizen Endorsement states:
"In the race for county supervisor, our vote for one candidate is a no-brainer: Janelle Rettig deserves another term on the board.
Rettig is sharp, thoughtful, budget-minded, and she is acutely aware of the needs of all Johnson County residents, urban and rural. She brings a different perspective to the board, admitting that she sometimes will play "devil's advocate" for the sake of questioning and exploring all sides of an issue.
Rettig is passionate about addressing the growing issue of poverty and food insecurity in Johnson County. It’s something people don’t see, she says, and it’s something we can’t ignore. She wants to make headway on affordable housing by finding ways to work with city governments to find solutions.
She sees potential in a regional transit authority to address transportation issues and needed access to services. She also knows the importance of establishing a future jail alternatives center in the county — something she wants to help see through to fruition as a board member."
