"Stephanie's ability to work collaboratively truly sets her apart, and her unwavering compassion for others  - and their pain-points when working within San Juan County. She understands that true progress is achieved through unity and cooperation, not division. Her inclusive approach ensures that every voice is heard and every perspective is considered in the decision-making process. I wholeheartedly endorse Stephanie for County Council!"

MIKE CARLSON

“I have known Stephanie both personally and professionally since she moved to San Juan Island with husband Pat O’Day. Stephanie is the real deal!  She has broad knowledge of the Island’s culture. She knows the difficulties that working class Islanders are facing just to continue living in the San Juans.  Housing and available land for housing are among the biggest challenges that local businesses and islanders face. Stephanie has a unique understanding of these challenges and better yet, she has the tenacity and knowledge to affect the changes that are needed help solve the housing availability crisis.

     Stephanie will be a BADASS county councilor!”

BOB WILSON

San Juan Surveying

"I have been a surveyor in San Juan County for over two decades.  In that time, as a land use professional, I have done my best to provide well-researched determinations to my clients and balanced their desires within the regulatory framework of local, state, and federal governmental agencies.  I have worked with Stephanie O’Day on numerous projects and have observed her serve her clients with passion and unwavering commitment.  Stephanie listens and works diligently to find the middle ground.  She is, first and foremost, a problem solver.  I wholeheartedly add my support to Stephanie as we need her on the San Juan County Council."

"Stephanie would make an excellent County Council member due to her experience and knowledge gained from working with the County’s planning, permitting,  and development departments over the last 30 years.  She is very familiar with current functioning of those departments and where improvements are needed.   It is critical that we enhance those departments, to streamline their production. We need permitting of new construction  and remodels take less time and not be as expensive.  Stephanie is a supporter of property rights. 

 

One of Stephanie ‘s top concerns is affordable housing which is very important to me as a member of this community and as a Realtor.   The affordability of housing in our islands must be addressed now in order to have a diverse population.  Stephanie has numerous ideas that could be solutions for our affordable housing crisis. 

Stephanie O’Day as a Council  member will be the voice of reason .  I hope that you will vote for her."

NANCY FUSARE

Friend & Escrow Professional

"I have known Stephanie O’Day for over 30 years and am privileged to call her my friend. We have been in Kiwanis together, me for the last 25 years and her for the last 16 years. We have worked on many Kiwanis events together, including the Pig War Picnic, the Children’s Festival, Fish for Teeth, Touch-a-Truck and more. She is a tireless, hard worker for our community service group as well as a close personal friend. I’ve had the privilege of working with her in her law practice as well, running her escrow division and as legal assistant and she was always able to calm her clients and keep a level head if the situation got heated. She is very balanced and fair and can always see both sides of a situation and therefore a good mediator. I strongly recommend her for the position of County Council person because I think she would bring all of her legal and personal communication skills to the table."

LISA DE JARDINS AND JOHN NANCE

FRIENDS

Having been immersed in living, working, and volunteering on San Juan Island for over 30 years, Stephanie is an Islander. As an Islander and an attorney, she has become acutely aware of the challenges we face as a community; affordable housing, daycare, economic development, tourism, and transportation. Through her work, she has experienced San Juan County's cumbersome land use regulations and their impact on the construction trades and individuals trying to develop their land. She will seek the appropriate balance for the people and our precious environment. My vote is for Stephanie, who I believe will successfully navigate the nuances of the position of County Council and be a strong voice of reason here and in Olympia.

Lori Ann David - I look forward to having a new, strong County Council team with Stephanie championing the island's way-for businesses, for families... to make this special place economically viable-let's fix what's broken for all who call this HOME! Stephanie's experience and ability to get things done will be a great resource for the community.

Bobby Ross - As a builder and excavator, my vote goes to Stephanie O’Day.  Protect our island way of life!
