Dan Pike: Mayor, Bellingham
Posted on July 5, 2011 - 5:06pm
As Mayor of Bellingham, Dan Pike has shown strong leadership during tough times, always with a focus on the triple bottom line. The Sierra Club endorses Dan because he is willing to stand up for his principles and take action on pressing issues, environmental or otherwise, even when it may be politically popular to stay on the sidelines. Most notably, he recently became the first elected leader to take a bold stand against the proposed coal port at Cherry Point, which would have major deleterious social, economic, and environmental impacts on Bellingham and the entire state. He has also worked to restore transit services to Bellingham residents and has stood up to the county to protect the community's right to clean drinking water from Lake Whatcom.
