Letter: Homola is ‘proven energy’ that’s needed in a state representative

Editor,

There’s some great candidates for that state rep position, but one stands out.

Angie Homola walks the talk, does her homework and has shown time and again the bandwidth, passion and people centered tenacity to get things done.

Things like improving veterans and senior services, passing a resolution to measure and reduce CO2 emissions at the county and, starting a nonprofit to preserve natural areas in the district.

As a county commissioner, she championed open and transparent government by putting things like meetings and agendas online and published.

Being locally connected and active within our district for years, she knows our priorities and needs.

Angie prioritizes public and mental health care, helped bring a mental health care clinic to Whidbey and Camano islands.

Speaking of donations, she actually donated, back to the county, over $30k of her salary and benefits during the 2008 recession.

Angie has actively lobbied in Olympia for those issues we care about including banning fin fish net pens,improving veterans services, the mental health sales tax to restore levy capacity to local governments, affordable housing and the Growth Management Act.

Best of all, Angie’s approachable, articulate and listens – her phone number, not surprisingly appears right on her home page.

She is truly a candidate of the people, not special interests, as evidenced by a review of the public disclosure commission where virtually all of her support is from people within this district.

Not the case with all candidates.

Let’s get some proven energy working on our side in that state representative position.
