05/03/2012: "Pratt Will Run For Re-Election"

PRESS RELEASE: ~ San Juan County Councilmember Lovel Pratt will run for re-election. Lovel Pratt is in her 4th year on the Council. “It is an honor to serve on the Council representing District 1,” said Councilmember Pratt.

“I ask voters in San Juan South to give me the opportunity to continue my work on behalf of San Juan County. I have received a lot of encouragement to run for re-election. My constituents appreciate my dedication and accessibility, my responsiveness to their concerns and my hard work on behalf of San Juan County at the local, regional, and state level.”

Lovel Pratt said she is running for a second term because she wants to follow through on several important issues. “I want to make sure that San Juan County is on firm footing for the future,” she said. “There is continued work needed to identify and implement a long-term, sustainable budget; resolve solid waste issues and in particular self-haul options on San Juan Island; and ensure that the Council has a transparent and publically accessible decision-making process. Regarding the Council’s legislative priorities there is considerable work still needed, particularly on oil spill issues and the Cattle Point Road realignment project.”

Councilmember Pratt travels regularly to Olympia while the Legislature is in session to advocate for SJC legislative priorities, including improved oil spill prevention, readiness, and response; ferry transportation issues; and maintaining state funding for essential county programs and services. Councilmember Pratt represents the SJC Council on the Washington State Association of Counties (WSAC) Legislative Steering Committee, and was appointed by WSAC to represent counties on the Cross-Partnership Oil Spill Work Group and the Oil Spill Rule Advisory Committee.
