Dear Whatcom Neighbor,
The next County Council will be making critical decisions that have long-lasting effects on all of us here in Whatcom County. Those looming issues have convinced me to run for one more term. But to win we will need your support to ensure these decisions are made by a Council majority who share your values and have a well-founded vision for our beautiful county.
We can have viable farms, clean water, open space, and friendly neighborhoods if we are guided by well-developed science and good planning, and each take responsibility for the stewardship of our own property and lifestyle.
Together we can do what’s necessary to protect the qualities that make Whatcom County such a great place to live. You can be sure I will use reason and sound judgment based in fact when making the critical decisions before the next Council.
I would be honored to have your vote.
