Proven leader; Pratt for council | Letters

The prospect of losing Lovel Pratt’s experience and expertise on our County Council is a concern to many of us.

Lovel is a proven leader for this community, from creating permanently affordable housing to having the vision for Brickworks and managing the project from the feasibility study to the property purchase. From my work in regional transportation I know that Lovel is respected by state and federal officials, and it is those relationships that have paid off for the county in terms of attention to the ferries and oil spill response.

We need her continued advocacy in Olympia and with our Congressional delegation. I do hope that Lovel will run for the San Juan Island council position. She has my support.

Liz Illg, San Juan Island
