More meaningful outreach and news! And only 3 weeks until election day!
This past week of outreach was another busy one!
It was wonderful to attend the Tuesday Seniors Luncheon at Woodman Hall on Lopez to introduce myself and engage in conversation. I look forward to making a strong connection with our seniors’ community across the County.
On Wednesday I was invited to attend the weekly meeting of County Government officials / department heads (elected and appointed). It was great to make this initial introduction and to put names to faces! I look forward to meeting more of them in the weeks ahead.
Later in the week on Friday I had the opportunity to meet with Faith Van de Putte who works for the San Juan County Agricultural Resources. We had a chance to discuss the work of the Agricultural Resources Committee and its final inputs to the ongoing update of the SJC Comprehensive Plan. I also met with the Director of Public Works, Colin Huntemer and Council Member Cindy Wolf. Both were visiting Lopez last Friday to see the sites of prospective public works projects in the coming year.
Saturday, as a community volunteer I was very happy to help organize the first visit of the new 4H San Juan County WSU Extension Coordinator, Jennifer Krembs to promote the re-growth of 4H on Lopez Island. We have so much potential to grow 4H on Lopez and across the County after a few difficult years during the COVID-19 pandemic!
By the way, in case you didn’t see it, here is a link to the Seattle Times article on how San Juan County fared across the State and country in its management of COVID-19. We should feel proud of our county government and recognize all that it did to keep us safe!
Finally, I will be on Shaw Island on Sunday, October 23 for a ‘meet and greet’ from 1:30 – 3:00 pm at the Community Building! I’m very much looking forward to this!
