I am very impressed with County Council candidate Rud Browne. Rud and his family have lived here for over 20 years. He has been heavily involved in community activities. He has extensive business experience, founding a company that grew to over 300 employees. He also stresses positive action, emphasizing good economic decisions that affect the quality of our environment. Whatcom residents should be proud of our environment and maintain its high quality to attract investments and jobs.
There are many important issues facing the County Council including the need for compliance with state law and managing the financial impact of a much needed new jail. Water quality is also critical. Unlike his opponent, Rud supported the Lake Whatcom reconveyance which proves to me his ability to make good decisions.
