Homola is best choice for 10th LD, House, Position 1

We are health care providers and educators, relying on facts and forums to get to know the candidates for the 10th Legislative District, House, Position 1. After watching an Indivisible Whidbey interview of the four Democratic candidates competing, we observed a marked disparity. As voters we want elected officials who are sharp, knowledgeable about the job, and extremely energetic, Angie Homola prevails “hands down.”

As a county commissioner Angie worked effectively with local, state and national boards/committees with impressive achievements. Angie has a BS in architecture and masters in environmental law and policy. She worked for years at odd jobs to pay her student loans off. Overall, Angie is well rounded and has volunteered endlessly for her community, donating $30,000 of her salary to help the county provide needed services. She highly values life as a mother and a military wife. Angie has experience working through Navy and community conflicts, meeting with three base commanders and the chief of Naval Operations at the Pentagon to collaboratively discuss problems and solutions.

We urge voters to look closely at all candidates. Two candidates are firefighters/EMT’s (one served honorably as an elected official) and one is a nurse. These jobs are invaluable, but it takes more than “saving lives” and delivering babies (actually doctors/midwives deliver babies, nurses assist) to understand and implement state level policies.

We need someone who can be effective in Olympia, has an architect’s attention to detail for solving problems and implementing effective plans. Angie Homola demonstrates a unique ability to fulfill this need.
