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.
