In 2017, George Peterson, seen here with Shyla the dog, purchased Peninsula Nursery with the vision to create a place for community. Now he’s facing backlash from community members for his support of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe’s medication-assisted treatment facility and has seen his business drop “significantly” in the past month. Karen Willcutt started as a real estate broker in November 2018 with Town & Country in Sequim. She’s experienced drug addiction herself and seen it in her family. Willcutt recently stepped down from a leadership role with the group Save Our Sequim in opposition of placing a medication-assisted treatment facility in Sequim because her workload increases so much.
