Impressed with Van Werven’s commitment

Luanne Van Werven is running for 42nd District state representative. I’ve known her for many many years, and I’m so impressed by her commitment to serve the people of Whatcom County.

I beleive that Van Werven personifies compassion, intelligence and character. She is a woman of her word. You will not find a more trustworthy and sincere person. Van Werven has never hesitated to help others in need and during times of crisis. She does this generously but quietly. She knows the ultimate reward of seeing others get back on their feet.

Among her many accomplishments in our community, she’s been a longtime advocate for women in particular. Van Werven actively encourages women of all ages to succeed throughout Whatcom County, whether in business, in community service, or in their personal lives building strong families.

I encourage you to vote for Van Werven , but even more, I invite you to get to know her. You could not ask for a more open and honest friend who really does care about your ideas and concerns.
