Homola informed and prepared to represent 10th LD

We have a fantastic candidate running to serve the 10th Legislative District in the state House seat. I know Angie Homola can hit the ground running when she gets to Olympia next year.

Angie has a proven track record serving constituents as Island County Commissioner 2009-13 . She has a passion for people-centered government, and she improved transparency in Island County, making the commissioner meetings available to view remotely by TV and internet on Camano. She’s the most informed and prepared person in the room at any meeting I’ve attended with her.

She has real knowledge and solutions regarding the environmental issues facing our district, like climate change, sea level rise, air and water quality. As county commissioner she represented Island County at the state and regional level, on various state committees, and Angie met directly with the military to broker common sense solutions regarding the Growlers at the Whidbey Naval Air Station. As a former active union member and military wife, she’s running to really represent people’s interests, like when she made sure more indigent veterans were served by county programs, even during the recession. She can negotiate and collaborate to bring real solutions. She advocated successfully for county employees to keep their pay rates despite budget cuts.

Please check her out on her website: angieforall.com; her number is listed and she is accessible by phone. Please join me in voting for Angie Homola for state representative.
