As many of you know, the solid waste (garbage) facilities on San Juan Island and the entire county have been experiencing issues for quite some time.
After another very long wait to dump my garbage in the summer of 2011 I decided to visit Lovel Pratt in the county council offices. During that meeting she acknowledged the issues, briefed me on the details of what the county was planning and invited me to join the Solid Waste Advisory Council, which I did. Our collaborations continued even after I joined SWAC, and I can honestly say that I have learned almost as much about the state of our solid waste facilities through my brief collaborations with Lovel as I have during the entire year that I have served on SWAC. With the changes the voters recently approved to our county council, I believe that Lovel is the right person to lead our county in the right direction. She supports the transparency we need and wants our government to do the most good for the most people and the environment for the longest time.
