10th LD, House, Pos. 1: Homola is qualified and experienced

Primary ballots are due Aug. 4 and we will make important choices for many elected officials. Pay particular attention to District 10, State Representative, Position 1.

District 10 local Democrat organizations have endorsed four Democratic contenders. The primary will narrow this to one.

To this end, please consider Angie Homola for state representative for District 10. Angie is clearly the standout. She is well-equipped with an abundance of qualifications and experience to represent District 10.

Angie was Island County Commissioner for four years, has completed a master’s in environmental law and policy, is active in the Democratic Central Committee of the Democratic Party and has stayed engaged with the Environment and Climate Caucus during the last four legislative sessions. She is scholarship chair for the Whidbey AAUW Chapter; education is an essential part of her resume, especially for young women.

Angie and her husband, Jerry (a retired Navy pilot) have lived on Whidbey for 23 years raising two extraordinary children, both with major educational achievements. They, and the many young progressives who have volunteered for Angie’s campaign give me great hope for the future.

Angie’s priorities include affordable housing, public and mental health care, environmental protection and actions to reduce climate change. She values honest government, education and vocational training, transportation improvements, living wage jobs and clean energy. She has a robust website at www.angieforall.com. I encourage you to look at it when making your decision.
