I have devoted my entire career to protecting our environment, the health of children and our communities, and working in the public interest. As Director of Heart of America Northwest, I am nationally recognized as the long-time leader of the efforts to clean up the Hanford Nuclear Reservation (the most contaminated area in the Western Hemisphere); and, as co-author of some of our state's most important environmental laws.
However, my most important environmental accomplishment is inspiring and training students and the public to be active environmentally concerned citizens and helping students who are interested in devoting their careers to working for our environment.
The 46th District wants a legislator who does much more than just vote for the environment. We need a legislator who is a local leader for our environment.
BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT
My years of hands-on successful leadership working on environmental issues have earned me the strongest endorsements from environmental leaders and organizations. (See the bottom of this page.) I have worked for the cleanup of Hanford and to stop use of Hanford as a national radioactive waste dump; been a champion for our state to play a leadership role in the nation to fight climate change and promote renewable energy; worked for clean water and protection of Puget Sound and Lake Washington; and successfully drafted and lobbied for laws to protect children's health from exposures to toxic wastes and chemicals.
