Pratt for county council | Letter

January 18, 2013 · Updated 2:44 PM

We are writing to endorse Lovel Pratt for county council.  While we were serving on the Land Bank Commission (Nancy) and as Mayor of Friday Harbor (David) we worked with Lovel to make the Brickworks project a reality.

Together we drafted and redrafted thoughts on the scope of the project and worked with county and town elected officials to obtain funding for the project. We found Lovel’s participation in this effort to always be diligent, thoughtful and thorough. She was open to ideas and a team-player all the way.

Lovel expended a great deal of “political capital” on this project and while we were not successful in convincing county and town to financially endorse Brickworks, time has proven that the vision created has “legs” of its own.  Lovel understood and had the courage to fight for this vision of community, agriculture and economic development.

As residents of the town, we are pleased to have the opportunity to vote for Lovel Pratt.

Nancy and David Jones
