Vote Power this fall | Letter

I’m writing this letter to urge my fellow citizens to vote for Nick Power for prosecuting attorney in the upcoming election this fall.

I’ve been a resident of San Juan County since moving to Lopez Island in 2012.

Nick is an accomplished attorney who cares deeply about our community. He and his wife Penelope are raising two daughters on San Juan, and the family participates in activities like at the San Juan Community Theatre.

As a private attorney, Nick has represented a spectrum of our neighbors and fellow residents seeking justice through our legal system, including whistleblowers and other victims.

A political progressive who was a Bernie Sanders delegate to the state caucuses in 2016, he will be a reliable public servant in the political mainstream in our special community. During the campaign, Nick has advanced new ideas for addressing the hard drug problems that have plagued our county.

Twenty four years is long enough for someone to hold the same elective office – please join me in supporting Nick for prosecuting attorney.
