Jesse Salomon: State Senator, District 42
Jesse Salomon is challenging incumbent Dale Brandland, who earned a C for his legislative votes in 2006. Mr. Salomon is an attorney who has worked for the Lummi Nation and advocated for student issues as the legislative liaison to Olympia for Western Washington University students.
His priority campaign issues include controlling urban sprawl and protecting our agricultural lands from encroachment. He also supports rapid transition of the emerging clean and renewable energy industry from the science laboratory to the consumer market (he is a supporter of I-937, but believes that clean energy and renewable technologies should be implemented before 2020).
He will work to bring in state funds for cleaning up Bellingham Bay (contaminated with mercury and waterfront industrial byproduct chemicals) as part of the ongoing waterfront redevelopment. By primary day, his campaign had already visited 10,000 homes in his district.
