Rick Nagel, Co-owner
Regardless of your political party, I don't think Jackson County could hope for a better qualified commissioner than Richard "Rick" Nagel.
I've known Rick for many years and I know him to have the abilities and temperament that this important position calls for. Rick's experience as a certified public accountant would serve our county well, as would his insights from his many years of running his own small CPA practice. Rick and his lovely wife, Yolanda, are actively involved in our community. He has taught at SOU and the Oregon College of Business; sits on the board of directors of the Phoenix-Talent School District as well as On-Track; is a longtime Rotary Club member and has served twice as president of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce. I urge your vote for Rick Nagel for county commissioner, position 1. - Mike Mooney, Ashland
Rick Nagel, a Phoenix-Talent school board member and tax accountant, is the fourth Republican to enter the race for the seat now held by Jackson County Commissioner Jack Walker.
Nagel, a 73-year-old Talent resident, is running against Gold Hill resident Morris "Bub" Saltekoff, Medford resident Don Skundrick and Phoenix resident Walker. Nagel said he's thought about running before, but decided that since he became semi-retired last year, now would be the best opportunity. If elected, he said he would devote himself full time to his job as county commissioner. He said he's always been civic minded - he's the president of Ontrack Inc. and was twice president of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce. "What I bring is a business background," he said.
Court Boice of Medford and Rick Nagel of Talent joined the list of hopefuls seeking positions held by Dave Gilmour, who will not seek re-election, and Jack Walker, who will.
Nagel, a Phoenix-Talent school board member and tax accountant, is the third Republican to challenge Walker in the May 18 primary. Nagel said he's thought about running before, but decided that since he is semi-retired as of last year, now would be the best opportunity. If elected, he said he would devote himself full time to his job as county commissioner. He said he's always been civic-minded - he's the president of OnTrack, the addictions treatment center, and was twice president of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce. "What I bring is a business background," he said. "I have the ability to go in and listen and learn and find out what's on people's mind." Nagel said his combined background in business and community work make him highly qualified for the commissioner seat. He said he would like to find ways to bring more jobs to Jackson County as part of his role as commissioner. He said he's filed a Measure 37 claim on his Talent property, referring to the property rights initiative that was overturned by Measure 49. While he believes land-use laws could be more flexible for property owners, Nagel said he supports preserving the natural beauty of the state. "I guess I'm an environmentalist," he said. "Anybody is an environmentalist if you're from Oregon." Nagel said he would step down from his school board position if elected, though it wouldn't be required. He said the commissioner position is a full-time job. He thinks the commissioner salary, which is more than $90,000, is high and he would entertain the idea of decreasing it. Boice said it will be his mission to keep liberals out of office. Strict adherence to the Constitution and the election of conservatives at all levels is the best road to job recovery, he said. He said he comes from working class origins and lives in the trenches, like many families in Jackson County. As a result, job creation is essential, and government should get out of the way of business. "Government must get off all the 'air hoses' of business," he said in a prepared statement. Boice said he will not vote for any more pay raises for commissioners and will try to seek a "fairness consensus" on present salaries. He said Washington, D.C., and Salem have both abandoned the Rogue Valley, so this area needs to figure out how to survive on its own.
