The proposed Cherry Point coal terminal in Bellingham and the growler jet noise on Whidbey Island are issues that make us angry.
We wonder why no one in a position in authority is addressing them. Now is our chance to install someone who will do something: Mike Lapointe, independent candidate for Congress
Mike Lapointe is an independent from Everett. Mike has been a machinist and a union officer with the Electrical Workers Union, he has worked at a shelter for teens, he was involved with the Occupy Movement, and he is currently co-owner of a wonderful coffee shop in Everett called the Firewheel.
