In my opinion our elected representatives in government, like Congressman Rick Larsen, Senator Patty Murray, Senator Maria Cantwell, and Governor Jay Inslee add proof as Super Delegates, they're not caring about what their constituents say! And since they obviously no longer represent our voice in our elected corporate government, it's our obligation as citizens to at least know we have other choices much more trustworthy and worthy.
Community Events, July 2016
Over a month ago I graduated from high school here on the island. This is a time in my life that is filled with excitement and optimism. And while I am very excited for what the future holds, like many of my peers I have taken the opportunity to reflect. I have reflected on the people who have done so much for myself growing up. The organizations that have influenced me. And the community groups that have helped show me who I am. So now that I am moving on into the next phase of my life I can say that without a doubt, the Orcas Center has gotten me here.
Lauren Platman's article in last week's paper on conservation inspired me to share more ways to reduce our usage.
I'm voting for Bill Watson to make sure 2017 is the year San Juan County begins to seriously work on several important issues. Bill began his life in San Juan County working with the Economic Development Council, and he is committed to helping create a sustainable local economy. The revision of the agricultural ordinances is a beginning step. He believes after that there is much more to do to help agriculture remain part of the landscape and our culture.
I am running for County Council Position 1. I am best known for my integrity, charitable activities, and for starting Community Treasures. I do not support polluting our county rural roads with political signs, so I invite you to visit my website to review my platform and leadership experiences over the last 40 years. www.penwell4council.com
