My efforts have reached beyond the County line to work on issues that affect San Juan County.  I have:

·       Championed making oil spill prevention and response a part of the Puget Sound Partnership’s Strategic Initiatives.

·      Authored letters that the County Council has sent to various agencies concerning oil and coal shipments through our waters.

·       Testified in Olympia and worked with legislators to forward our interests on ferries, farming taxation, and shared tax revenues.

·       Traveled at my own expense to lobby our delegation on the San Juan Islands National Monument and $8 million Cattle Point Road realignment project on San Juan Island.
