Statement: Our economy isn’t just dollars and cents, it’s how we care for one another and grow our communities. We need leaders who fight for our values. Protecting our children, the environment, and workers isn’t charity, it’s an investment in our future.
No child deserves to live in poverty. No family deserves to go hungry. No person deserves to go without a well-paying job. I ask for your vote because for too long our voices have gone unheard, we need a representative who will protect our environment and protect our families, it’s time for change in Whatcom County.
