In September of this year the County Council was asked by 17 year old Lopez Island resident Teddy M. McCullough [photo right] to make a proposed change in State law on liquor licenses a County priority.

On Tuesday McCullough's proposed bill was introduced by Senator Ranker, and scheduled for a hearing on Thursday (01-27-11).

McCullough, who first took up the cause as a senior project at Lopez Island High School, then showed up at a County Council meeting, will now be traveling down to Olympia within the next month to testify and lobby for the bill.

Said McCullough, “We have an obligation to make sure that students are protected and safe while at school. This bill takes the critical next step to insulate youth from exposure to alcohol at a vulnerable age.”

“Civic education is essential for creating an informed and engaged citizenry and ensuring the future health of our representative democracy,” Said Ranker. “I applaud Teddy’s efforts and courage to stand up for the public safety and welfare of his peers.”

But young Teddy does more than that. In the same month he testify before the Council, he organized a "Remembering 9/11" day on Lopez. You can read that story by clicking HERE
