Submitted by Collin on Thu, 10/15/2020 - 13:58

There are two good candidates in this race, Cindy Wolf and Rich Hughes, who would bring different approaches to their work on the San Juan County Council. Hughes has experience in office and offers a pragmatic approach to local government, while Wolf brings her perspective as a progressive activist organizing for change and has earned support from local Democratic groups.

General 2020 - PVG Intro

Dear Friend,

Check your mailbox – ballots for the 2020 general election arrive this week! This election features candidates and ballot measures that will have a big impact on equality, economic security, and the future of our state.

Below is the Fuse Progressive Voters Guide – your ticket to highly-informed voting based on progressive values. We worked with Washington's leading progressive organizations to recommend candidates across the state.

Rick Hughes

Incumbent Councilmember Rick Hughes has been serving on the San Juan County Council for 7 years and owns Ray's Pharmacy. His re-election campaign platform includes the county debt that has been paid off throughout his terms as well as infrastructure improvements in the county. Hughes has encouraged people to stay home to stay healthy and wear masks throughout the coronavirus pandemic. He is an appointee to the Joint Transportation Committee and wants to prioritize getting all islanders a sustainable and reliable transportation system. Hughes is a great choice if you're looking for someone who will build coalitions across the political spectrum to pass bipartisan legislation. 

Christine Grant

Submitted by alexwhite on Mon, 10/05/2020 - 15:34

Christine Grant is challenging incumbent Jeffrey McClure to become the first woman commissioner of Public Utility District (PUD) 1 of Whatcom County. Grant is a first-time candidate who has spent 12 years becoming an industry expert, consulting for rural electric cooperatives, utilities, and government agencies. She also serves on the board of directors for Spark Northwest.

Grant is running to modernize the policy objectives of Whatcom's PUD. Specifically, she wants to build long-overdue infrastructure for accessible and widespread internet, guarantee affordable electricity, and integrate sustainability and stewardship into PUD projects. Grant has earned a number of notable endorsements from progressive organizations and leaders.

Incumbent commissioner and architect Jeffrey McClure has held a position on the Whatcom Public Utility District since 2008. McClure has been a diligent member of the Whatcom PUD. However, as we face a climate crisis and the economic opportunity that it presents, we need bold and innovative leaders to keep our county competitive and our rates low.

Christine Grant will fight for the progressive change that Whatcom needs from its public utility district. She is the best choice in this race and deserves your vote.

Mark Lundsten

Mark Lundsten is challenging incumbent Republican Rob Wesen to represent District 1 on the Skagit County Board of Commissioners. Lundsten has served Skagit County as a planning commissioner since 2017, where he learned about and helped decide key land-use issues facing the district.
