Pratt for county council; keeps the ‘big picture’ in mind | Letters

I am writing to endorse the candidacy of Lovel Pratt for County Council.

I have known Lovel for many years, including her time helping with the creation of the USDA mobile meat processing unit on Lopez, as executive director of the San Juan Community Home Trust, as a planning commissioner, and finally as a council member.

What has impressed me about Lovel is her ability to see the big picture.

Although she was a council member from San Juan Island, we would often see her on Lopez for our significant events, including the GMO-Free Initiative, and her support for local control of our dump. She is one of two council members who has made it a point to create a presence in Olympia for all of San Juan County.

As a former San Juan County commissioner, I have been aware that Lovel is a strong supporter of local agriculture. Lovel is humble and yet not afraid to dig into issues. I encourage you to vote for Lovel in the upcoming county-wide primary for District 1 council member.
