Letter to the Editor: San Juan County Needs Watson
By Kevin Ranker, State Senator for 40th Legislative District, originally appearing in Orcas Issues on October 20, 2016.
I have known Bill Watson for many years. I find him to be exactly the sort of thoughtful person we need leading this great county of ours.
We need strong, intelligent advocates for the issues that bind us together as a community. Bill joining Jamie and Rick on the County Council would create a team that would work exceptionally well together to represent our island communities.
We have unique needs living on these beautiful islands, from needing a County Council that will continue to be strong advocates for our ferries, to making sure we grow our economy as well as opportunities for more housing, while protecting the beautiful environment.
We need a San Juan County Council that is fully dedicated to tirelessly advocating for our core values.
That is exactly why I support Bill Watson. Please join me in voting for Bill Watson.
