Clallam Conservation Voters, a local environmental group, endorses Tharinger in commissioner race

Peninsula News Network


Clallam County, WA - A local environmental group is throwing its support behind the incumbent in the present race for Clallam County commissioner.

The Clallam Conservation Voters announced Thursday that they are endorsing Steve Tharinger for re-election to District 1 position. Tharinger is running against Republican Sue Forde in the November General election.

The organization is a local chapter of Washington Conservation Voters. Both organizations focus on electing and supporting candidates for public office whose priorities include a healthy environment.

CCV chairperson, Mary Bedinger, said members of the local chapter based their decision on Tharinger’s actions during his current term saying he has, quote, “a solid record of working to preserve our farmlands, restore salmon to our streams and support land use that is in our best economic as well as environmental interests”.

The race between Forde and Tharinger has seen the incumbent pressing his work on environmental and “quality of life” issues, while Forde has focused much of her message on private property rights, development and economic growth.
