Letter to the editor: Championing Clyde Shavers

In mid-August Bob Raymond and I met with Rep. Clyde Shavers over coffee. Wow, what an impressive guy! He thinks five years ahead. Green hydrogen. Agritourism. Affordable housing. Financial education in our high schools. Investing in our rural communities. Services to our veterans. The environment. Electrification of school buses.

He is working on 13 bills right now that he will push forward in the next session. He knows how to get things done in Olympia. Where does he get the energy?

When he asked for input, I handed him my study of the tax shift and its effect on the taxpayers of La Conner and surrounding areas. The study calls for the elimination of this practice. He volunteered that he would work with the Department of Revenue.

Bob asked about affordable housing and reviewed how we screwed up the development of the ballfield on Maple Avenue.

Clyde Shavers is the right person for duty in the state legislature. He deserves our votes next year.
