Whatcom County - 42nd LD Campaign News

Jesse Salomon is running for WA State Senate, 42nd Legislative District.
I just got this update from Jesse:
Hi all,

Checking in from the campaign trail. Things are going well and we're picking up momentum. We've doorbelled the district once (7,000) and are going back a second time.

People across Whatcom County are excited about our meaningful message. As your Senator, I will work to improve the Growth Management Act so it does better at controlling growth and preventing sprawl. I am absolutely committed to ensuring clean air and water, and preserving open space and agricultural lands. I will find workable ways to make health care more accessible and affordable. We need a first class education system so our graduates can compete for family wage jobs. We must investigate why gas prices are higher here, and also develop a local clean and renewable energy industry.

I do believe the Dems are poised to take over this year and we've picked up some great endorsements including: State Sen. Harriet Spanel, former State Senators Barney Goltz and Georgia Gardner, State Rep. Kelli Linville, Whatcom County Councilmember Seth Fleetwood, Bellingham City Councilmember Barbara Ryan, Washington State Labor Council, Washington Education Association, NAARAL.

We need volunteers to doorbell with us on the weekends and we need good spots for yardsigns. You can contact my campaign manager Ellen at (360) 820-1664. Our website is
