Mary Lou Dickerson (D): State Representative #2, District 36
Rep. Dickerson works behind the scenes on the Natural Resources Committee to maintain a progressive direction on a committee that might otherwise be a barrier for the environmental community. A strong leader within the Democratic caucus, Dickerson has championed bills on toxics, Puget Sound, and global warming. She sponsored a bill to prohibit cruise ships from discharging waste into the state’s waters and makes sure that the Democratic Caucus prioritizes Sierra Club issues, serving as a reliable source of strategic help for winning crucial votes. She’s a founding member of an important weekly dinner attended by environmental lobbyists and their best allies in the House.
