About my campaign
Clearwater County is a great place to live, and I want to help it stay that way.
I am Vincent Frazier and I am running for District 2 County Commissioner.
My family has been part of North Central Idaho since 1896 as part of the homesteading community. I am a lifelong Idaho resident, and have lived in rural small towns most of my life, by choice. I wanted to make sure my three boys grew up with the same beliefs and values that I did.
My 25 years of experience as a Law Enforcement officer gives me an extensive public-service background in Idaho. I am currently working for the City of Orofino Police Department as a front-line supervisor.
I spent 5 ½ year as a subject matter expert, working alongside our US Military mentoring and training Iraqi and Afghanistan Police Forces.
I hold two-year degree in criminal justice and a Management Certificate with the Idaho Police Officer Standard in Training, along with a Master Certificate in Law Enforcement.
I was proud to be voted in and to represent Clearwater County as their Coroner for 4 years. A vital part of that job was interacting with our Clearwater County community during their time of loss and I strived to be supportive and respectful in their time of sorrow. Another part of the job was budgeting with the Clearwater County Commissioners and was a good steward of the budget I was given. The Coroner needs to work with the Commissioners and Prosecuting Attorney’s Office to facilitate a contract with the Spokane Medical Examiner Office to perform needed autopsies for the County and in doing so, I help save the county taxpayers money.
For the last two years I have been the Precinct 1 committee representative, and work hard to be supportive to our election process.
My platform is Reinforce, Restrain and Repair.
As Commissioner I will reinforce Clearwater County Values, God, Family and Country. I will reinforce our rural heritage by supporting the timber industry, farming and recreation in our County.
As commissioner I will reinforce the belief that Government should be smaller, more efficient and more accountable.
I will reinforce the Constitution as it should be honored, and it values upheld.
I will reinforce the support of those who have served and are serving to protect our freedoms.
As Commissioner I will reinforce Common Sense Government.
As Commissioner I will restrain from raising taxes (as Clearwater County is the 10 th highest taxed county in the State.) Lower taxes encourage economic development, so more jobs are created in our county. I will restrain any unnecessary spending and be a good steward of County funds and will restrain the outside influences from dictating what is best for Clearwater County. I feel it is our County and therefore should be our voice.
As Commissioner I will work with each department head for the county to set goals and objectives to achieve desired outcomes. (Set 2,5,10 years goals).
I will work with department heads of:
- Road and Bridge
- Solid Waste
- EMS Ambulance, Sheriff, Prosecutor
- Planning and Zoning
- Extension office
- Courts Services and Probation and Parole.
By working together to meet those goals we can shape their departments to best serve our County.
I will repair the transparency with what the Commissioners are doing by putting out a detailed agenda. Not one that just meets what is required, but one where the public and the citizens are informed as to what is being discussed and encourages citizen input. I don’t have all the answers, but we have a wealth of knowledge in our community to draw from if we give them a chance and encourage their engagement.
I will repair the relationships with the employees and the County Commissioners. I know it’s not a privilege or luck that you have a job with Clearwater County, but it is our communities’ privilege that you uses your talent to best serve our county and citizens.
I would like your support and your vote.
