Yvonne Ward: State Senator, District 31
Yvonne Ward will make a great environmentally friendly State Senator in the 31st District. As an attorney in Auburn, Yvonne has continued to stand up for those who cannot defend themselves in our local communities. Currently, Ms. Ward is helping a citizens’ group in the Sumner and Bonney Lake area that is trying to stop the placement of a chemical tank farm in a residential neighborhood.
She believes in the power of community and knows how to work effectively with community leaders to resolve situations and produce results. Her opponent, incumbent Pam Roach, has a very poor environmental record in the Senate. Sen. Roach voted against clean cars, transportation funding, biofuels, and Puget Sound restoration, among much other green legislation, in the 2005/2006 Legislative Sessions.
Ms. Ward’s positions on the environment are in line those of the Sierra Club. Her voice in the Senate will be invaluable in establishing a green majority in the State Senate.
