Billig best replacement

Thank you for your recent editorial endorsement of Rep. Andy Billig to succeed me as the 3rd Legislative District’s next state senator.

It has been a privilege to serve this community as a legislator for the past 20 years. We have accomplished a lot in that time, from the development of the Riverpoint campus to the creation of the film industry incentive and the enhancement of organizations that serve people in our community, like the Northwest Autism Center, the Guild School, Crosswalk, and Sally’s House.

Andy is the right person to build on our past success and keep moving us forward. He gets results. In just two years, Andy has passed legislation that created jobs, protected the Spokane River, and improved our public schools.

Andy has the combination of intelligence and people skills that it takes to be effective in the Legislature. His House colleagues like and respect him. Those relationships will be valuable as he moves to the Senate.

Although I am an elected official, I am also a constituent, and I believe Andy is the best person to represent me, my family, and my community.

I hope you will join me in voting for Andy Billig.

Sen. Lisa Brown

As The Spokesman-Review’s Olympia reporter Jim Camden explained Feb. 22, lawmakers could vote on a bill today responding to a court order that the people of Washington are entitled to review legislative records.
