Though the Comp Plan process, I fought for diversifying the job opportunities in and around Langley.  Through this process we developed “low-impact” industrial as a possible opportunity for economic growth and diversity, while also hoping to draw more living-wage jobs to our community.

The current investments by our local telephone company, Whidbey Telecom, is also helping to bring new jobs to our community, many which have living-wage jobs, without requiring large investments of business in our community, making it easier to increase the number of jobs available here.
