I support the Wild Olympics Wilderness & Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2014. I grew up on the Olympic Peninsula, and though I do not currently reside in the state, it is a matter of great pride for me to share it with my fiancée on visits home, and ultimately to some day share it with our children.
I just read Diana Somerville’s insightful article “Going to pot: Growing our economy, protecting our environment” (Sequim Gazette, March 12, page A-13) and would like to add that almost all the problems cited with growing marijuana are due to society’s foibles.
In the very early 1980s I was a member of the Chamber’s Tourism Committee. Not having lived in Sequim very many years I suggested that we initiate some hanging baskets to brighten the town up.
As your state representative I have an interest in seeing local school districts succeed and the state provide the needed funding for that success to occur. Part of that success lies in the framework we provide for our children to learn, the actual buildings needed for education.
A crucial vote for all taxpayers within the Sequim School District will be on the upcoming ballot. The word “crucial” is apropos because it addresses an issue that impacts each and every citizen.
