I want to tell you about Rud Browne, who is running for Whatcom County Council. He is running against the incumbent Bill Knutzen. Rud has lived in this community for over 20 years. Having run a company that works in multiple countries, he brings an international perspective that I find informative. He has significant business experience creating over 300 21st century jobs as well as a proven track record of community service and involvement.
He would like to see resolution of the county's long running court battles that have created needless waste, delays, administrative burden and expensive compliance costs. Qualty drinking water for all will be a priority for Rud. He grew up in Australia where he witnessed significant environmental degradation. That experience guides his care for the environment and for the good of our community. I invite you to join me in voting for Rud Browne for the at large county council seat.
