IMO, one of the best commissioners this county has ever had. Knew how to listen respectfully, disagree with professionalism, and most importantly balance out the extremists. She also had the commitment to stand up for what was right, even if she had to do it alone. Mary, you will be missed.


A true public servant and a wonderful human being. Thank you for everything you’ve done for Yamhill County, Mary!


A true public servant.


The east coast wins on this move. Mary has made our community a better place, thank you for your work here and enjoy spending time with your loved ones!

Mary Stern was a real gem of a commissioner and is a terrific person. I will miss seeing her and wish her well on her next adventure.


I'm so sad to see her go - will always remember her many contributions to our community! ❤
