“As the only economist in the legislature, it’s important to me that the numbers add up, and that we’re exploring our options and using science, not ideology, to make decisions. That’s how I ended up with a reputation for showing up to meetings with a spreadsheet in Olympia. I’m pragmatic, honest, I work hard and I work across party lines. I get things done and that’s because I start by listening. Decisions made in Olympia impact you, which means I need to hear from you to understand how we can all work together.

I’m also a wife, a mom, a teacher, and a neighbor. I know how difficult the last two years have been for families in Whatcom County. People are struggling to afford a home, childcare is hard to find and even harder to afford, we still feel the health and economic impacts of the pandemic, and now we will be rebuilding from devastating floods.

You can count on me to get to work so that everyone in Whatcom County recovers and rebuilds. That includes repairs to roads and bridges, making housing and childcare more affordable, and mental health treatment available. As an agricultural economist I look for ways that local farmers can be successful and I am making sure we are thoughtful and effective when thinking about a clean energy future.

I’m running for Washington State Senate because I believe Whatcom County deserves a Senator who understands the challenges you’re facing and who will work every bit as hard as you do. Join me.”

Warm regards,

Sharon
