Rep. Rick Larsen visited San Juan Island and Lopez Island this week to hold round table discussions and visit locally important sites.

Wednesday, Aug. 26 on San Juan he spoke transportation stakeholders about county infrastructure, holding a roundtable discussion with members of county council, the school district, the town administrator, Port of Friday Harbor, and more. Larsen talked about the need for federal government funds to assist the county with infrastructure, and the possibility of upgrading the Anacortes ferry terminal in the future.

Larsen also held a roundtable with veterans at American Legion Post 163 to discuss way to let them gain better access to services.

At Westcott Bay, Larsen met with Westcott Bay Shellfish Company owners Andrea and Erik Anderson. After a tour of the grounds, Superintendent of San Juan Island National Historical Park Lee Taylor and Chief of Resources Manager Jerald Weaver gave Larsen a tour of the recently-acquired 34 acres of the park.
