Carolyn Long under the campaign slogan “People before Politics” seems determined to present herself as a candidate who promises to work together with the people she seeks to represent in southwest Washington in dealing with the challenges we face concerning tolling, fishing, forests and energy.

Rapeller’s illegally rappelling from the bridge were scolded and asked not to do it again, receiving some serious finger wagging and tongue lashing I hope.
