My name is Chuck Goode. I am running for county commissioner to address our critical issues, especially water, energy, housing and our environment. We need a sustainable long-term solution to preserve our quality of life in this beautiful county.

As a Democrat, I am often asked how I plan to approach the leadership of our predominantly conservative county. My response is simple: I am running for this office not as a Democrat or Republican, but as a servant of the people of Washington County. I'm asking for your vote because I believe that together, we can make our county an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.

In the spirit of bipartisan approach, I believe that effective leadership requires a willingness to work across party lines to achieve the best outcomes for our community. We all share a love for our county, and our focus should always be on what unites us rather than what divides us.

As your Commissioner, I will prioritize managing our growing economy. Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, and I will do everything in my power to foster a supportive environment where they can thrive. I will also work to attract new industries to our county, creating more good-paying jobs for our residents.

The natural beauty of Washington County is a treasure to be preserved. I will promote responsible land management and environmental policies that protect our landscapes for generations to come. I am determined to promote water conservation as we grow. I promise to listen to your concerns, value your input, and always act in the best interest of our community.


1. Conserve water by requiring all new homes to cut usage by 50% through recycling. If we add solar energy, our homes could be practically self-sufficient and never be without power or water. Families would save on utility costs and promote national security by getting off the grid.

2. Install a communications system to control traffic and improve emergency services for all county agencies. If we also expand transit facilities, our working families can get to work and our tourism economy will thrive. With this system, we can prevent crime and improve safety for our families. This system can be entirely funded by government grants. 

3. Create a county safety net for less fortunate people and pets. Create county facilities to support the homeless, the hungry, the mentally ill or addicted people by expanding the model of Switchpoint for our entire county. We need to support the receiving center in Purgatory for victimless crimes, build a county-wide no-kill animal shelter, and support southwest mental health center as they connect those in need with all our available resources including suicide prevention, domestic abuse prevention and addiction recovery services. A safety net saves people and money. We avoid the cost of law enforcement, detention centers, and emergency room visits. Pay a little now or pay a lot later.

4. Protect our beautiful environment. We are so lucky to have the tourism industry to support our economy. I would strive to keep this beautiful environment for all our posterity. Our grandkids deserve the same economic and spiritual benefits that we were given. Two thirds of our county is public land. We can enjoy this land without destroying its appeal. We do not need more roads. We need to leave no trace behind.

My name is Chuck Goode and I am asking for you vote. Thank you for your





We have maybe 8 years before we run out of water in Washington County. Watch this video:
