Strengthening Our Schools:
Four years ago, the Washington State Supreme Court demanded our legislature make public education a top priority in the budget. Our elected officials have failed to take action. As a mom, Sharlaine finds this unacceptable. As a legislator, Sharlaine wants to make sure that all of our kids have access to the best education and opportunity.
Protecting Our Environment:
Washington is home to diverse landscapes and waterways that we depend upon for our livelihood. Sharlaine will work to protect our environment while bringing new jobs to Whatcom County.
Ensuring Job Creation:
No one in this race has more experience in job creation than Sharlaine LaClair. Through her work with the Lummi Nation she has worked with small businesses, streamlined permitting, and recruited new businesses to Whatcom County. Sharlaine knows that family wage jobs create opportunity for everyone.
