Vote Smith; others can wait their turn | Letter to the editor

Posted

There is no better fit for District 2 commissioner than Lorna Smith. 

Lucky for us, resting on her laurels ain’t her style. She listens and cares and will go the extra mile. We need her unmatched experience, moxie, and vim.

In this extraordinary year, don’t vote on a whim. Lorna’s the one, this is her time, the others can wait their turn.

Vote for Lorna and soon you’ll see your trust she aptly earns.

Martha Fleming
PORT TOWNSEND

https://lornaforcommissioner.com/ Lorna has a lifetime of scientific background: LORNA HAD A 25-YEAR CAREER as a Snohomish County environmental and lands use manager before returning to Jefferson County ten years ago. She is known for her facilitation of appropriately scaled public projects. Her accomplishments include:

PROTECTION ISLAND NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

Lorna received national recognition for her key political role in establishing the Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge in partnership with Eleanor Stopps. After years of lobbying and trips to Washington D.C. Lorna persuaded elected officials to support the plan and President Reagan signed off on the bill to create this priceless reserve for breeding birds.(See details here and news articles on the "About" page.)

ATLANTIC SALMON NET PENS

Lorna helped lead a coalition of scientists and concerned citizens in collaboration with Commissioner Phil Johnson and State Representative Mike Chapman to successfully ban the use of salmon net pens in Washington, protecting our local salmon from diseases that these fish farming practices create. Letter to Marine Trades

NORTHERN TIER PIPELINE

Lorna helped mobilize and lead a coalition that successfully stopped the Northern Tier Pipeline that would have run up and over Protection Island, up and over Whidbey Island and then under water to Seattle. The Salish Sea remains a pristine body of water because this pipeline proposal was stopped. Campaign Letter projects.
