Statement: The people who live and work in this region are blessed with many opportunities and careers. We must promote growth policies that ensure that businesses are given the incentives to expand and develop while ensuring workers rights. The oil and gas industry where I am currently employed, provides thousands of jobs in our region and has a huge impact on the local economy. I will defend individual rights, protect property rights and the return of our water rights, prior to current moratorium (Hirst decision) which was imposed on property owners specifically in Skagit County.
