I respect Luanne VanWerven. She is one of the most caring individuals I have ever met. I believe Luanne is passionate about our community and she has served it in serveral capacities. She was on the Whatcom Youth Advisory Committee to help at risk youth and the Secretary of State’s advisory board to ensure our votes are counted accurately. Additionally, she has served as a citizen legislator in Olympia leading in efforts to improve Whatom County and has used her powers empower women in leadership roles during her tenure as a party chair. I am honored to call her my friend and I would be proud to call Luanne VanWerven my State Representative.
