Letter: Proud to support Homola for House of Representatives


In today’s world of so many unknowns, it’s good to have a candidate running for office with a proven record. That’s why I believe Angie Homola is our candidate for Washington State House of Representatives, Position 1 of the 10th Legislative District.

Angie’s positive record stresses her dedication to preservation of our area’s natural resources for now and the future generations. No one running can match her work in that field.

To that end she served as the resolution chair for the Environment and Climate Caucus during the past four legislative sessions. The caucus’ mission is to promote legislation that advances environmental and climate change protections and to endorse elected officials that will do so. Angie also founded an environmental nonprofit to protect a publicly-owned coastal lagoon on Whidbey Island.

As a member of the State Central Committee of the Democratic Party from 2016-18, Angie worked tirelessly to promote affordable housing and sustainable farming, as well as to improve work place rights and social justice.

But the projects mentioned here are just a few of Angie’s many accomplishments. As a U.S. Navy wife and mother, she has filled her 23 years on Whidbey with community service and numerous offices — all aimed at improving job opportunities and quality of life in our district. For a more thorough listing of Angie’s work, check out her website.

It is a privilege and honor to call Angie my friend and to support her candidacy for House of Representatives Position 1 of the 10th Legislative District.
