Opinion: Supports Rep. Van Werven for 42nd district state house representative – sort of

Photo by on

This is a strange letter of endorsement for Luanne Van Werven. I’ve already cast my vote against her and I do not regret my choice, but I also want to point out some aspects of her position that mark her as an extraordinary candidate.

She is a Republican and espouses a general Republican anti-communitarian position. I disagree to the point that I can’t vote for her.

Nevertheless, if you do not share my reservations, she has worked hard for fiscal responsibility, local Whatcom County interests, and she supports the expansion of broadband access. This is a position that I prefer to general ideals with few policy details.

We disagree, but I commend candidate Van Werven. I won’t be disappointed if she is elected.
