I am writing to express my support of Rick Hughes for San Juan County Council. From personal experience, I know that Rick works hard to support and listen to his constituency, including the residents of San Juan Island and the Town of Friday Harbor. During his two terms, Rick has made concerted efforts to be mindful of Town issues and concerns and continues to have a solid working relationship with town administration.
Over the years, Rick has demonstrated his understanding and support of complex issues such as affordable housing and ferry funding. Rick isn’t afraid to accept feedback and reconsider his position, always working towards what’s best for the community as a whole. During this pandemic period, Rick has also been very visible in encouraging support of public health guidelines — which as a high-risk individual, I have personally appreciated!
I will be voting for Rick this fall and I encourage everyone in joining me in affirming Rick’s experience, dedication, and hard work for all of the people of San Juan County.
