During these tough times it is vital to have experience and effective leadership on the Linn County Commission. Sherrie has excellent qualifications and strong experience. She has been representing parts of Linn County since 2008 as a state representative. This means she understands how government works and how to get things done.

She carefully weighs alternatives, considers possible outcomes and develops reasonable positions. She is approachable and engaged and genuinely committed to serving her constituents.
