Greens Delight Voters


Everywhere that Greens have been elected to public office, voters have been delighted with their honesty, their world-view and their environmental thoughtfulness.

Now we have our chance. We can elect Steve Ludwig to be a county commissioner - our own GREEN county commissioner.

Let's do it!

Ludwig Promises Open Govenment


Steve Ludwig should have your vote for county commissioner. Steve
advocates open, ethical government and public involvement. He promises to
make sure that citizens and neighbors will know what the county is
planning to do that might impact them before decisions are made, not after
the fact. He advocates researching options and finding common ground
rather than defending lawsuits with your tax dollars. He offers a Moral
Compass that will guide his actions. He promises representation in an
open forum and not the "We were elected to make the though decisions" line
used by a former commissioner. He favors putting controversial issues on
the ballot.

Steve advocates conservation of San Juan's resources and life style and of
your tax dollars. There is an abundance of talent on these islands that
deserves a forum and representation, not three person rule. Check him out
at and read his flyers. All of Steve's
advertising printing was done locally.

Steve Ludwig Is Talking About Issues


San Juan County faces a number of legal battles: those guest houses the GMA Hearing Board won't let us have; the barge landing at the gravel pits; the urban growth centers that have no infrastructure and now the Lampard Road acreage looms on the horizon?

The Green Candidate, Steve Ludwig is talking about County issues: let Eastsound and Lopez Village residents decide yea or nay on Urban Growth; really assess our aquifers and take steps to preserve them; $250,000 homes are not affordable to workers making $8 to $20 an hour; encourage business other than tourism; and get the County to start obeying state law including codes, and infrastructure.

This time around we do have a choice. Vote for Steve Ludwig for Commissioner.
