I am writing to express my support for Jeff McClure, who is running for re-election to his post as commissioner for Whatcom County PUD No. 1.
In my role as a business owner in Whatcom County I have a strong understanding of the importance of well-paying jobs in the community. Jeff McClure, as a partner at Bellingham's RMC Architects, has been involved in a number of projects that directly bring more jobs and greater economic vitality to our county.
I believe he applies this knowledge to his work with the PUD, making sound business and environmental decisions that contribute to the economic health of our community through jobs provided directly by the PUD and those provided by the industries that count on the PUD for electricity and/or water.
Jeff McClure has my vote for PUD commissioner on Aug. 5. I hope he can count on yours as well.
