The issue before us this election is really pretty straight forward. Mike Farmer and Bruce Ricks worked and kept their word to deal with the foul stench that covered our town. The smell hurt our health, our business and our image.
Ricks and Farmer's efforts and leadership through hours of meetings with the Clean Air board, Sunnyside Development Corporation, the Department of Ecology, the Port, civil attorneys and city staff to name a few, drove the process and played a key role in getting rid of the feedlot. Many times they were the only city representatives at these meetings. It would not have happened without them. I was there through the entire process, I know.
Ricks and Farmer had the vision and determination to see their promise through.
Mike Farmer and Bruce Ricks believe in Sunnyside's future.
