SUSAN WISWELL FOR YORK COUNTY
COMMISSIONER DISTRICT #5

(KITTERY, ELLIOT, YORK OGUNQUIT AND WELLS)

COMMITTED TO THE CITIZENS OF YORK COUNTY

District 5 needs a Commissioner who is active, involved and committed to its citizens. With a Fiscal Year 2020 budget of $20,588,800.00 and about 235 employees, county government is responsible for a 298-bed jail, sheriff’s department, emergency management, courts, probate, deeds and other administrative functions. The five Commissioners are responsible for budgeting county funds, awarding contracts, hearing tax abatement appeals and union grievances, approving hiring, maintaining records, inventorying county properties, approving economic development projects and entering into contracts with municipalities and other entities.

I have been attending Commissioners’ meetings regularly for the past seven years and have studied applicable standards, as well as researched and commented on numerous issues relevant to York County.
