McCart, as a businessman and farmer, recognizes the need to expand our economic base, grow our local economy, support good living wages, protect private property rights, and get government bureaucrats out of the way.
McCart stated “listening to the concerns of all residents, addressing the many widespread views, bringing people together to find solutions, and responsibly managing the affairs of the County is my promise.”
He is an experienced volunteer leader, participating in various county issues and is an outspoken advocate in the county budget process for responsible and priority spending.
McCart has current leadership roles in Stevens County Farm Bureau, Water Conservancy Board, Chamokane Creek and Colville Watersheds, as well as others. He has also played a prominent role in starting a Citizens Alliance for Property Rights group in Northeast Washington. McCart has consistently played a lead role in protecting private property rights and economic enhancements in Ferry, Spokane, Pend Oreille, and Stevens Counties.
McCart promises to uphold limited government. “I understand that responsible money management, public safety, transportation, public health, and only those things which can not be done by individuals working alone or in groups are the limits of responsible government” he stated.
McCart is committed to protecting our interests from undue outside influences. Having traveled to Olympia and Washington, D.C. many times, he will continue to protect our economy and rural lifestyle from bureaucratic agendas.
McCart has been married to his wife Pam for 29 years. The couple has lived in Stevens County for the past 18 years.
McCart recently stated “As your County Commissioner and public servant, face to face contact and communication of county issues through local media will be important to me. I will insist on participation in local events and travel of your local officials and staff for the convenience of the citizens. I promise to uphold high standards of excellence and efficient management principles throughout my term.”
