The Friends of LBA Woods invites you to support the re-election of Jeannine Roe to Olympia City Council Position 6. The election is August 1; ballots go in the mail in mid-July.
Jeannine has been not only a friend of the LBA Woods but also a friend of Olympia and tireless advocate for what is good in our community. Since 2009, she has served on Olympia City Council with competence, common sense, and compassion. She is the single-most qualified candidate—and the only one with legislative experience in city and state government.
Jeannine was the first council member who embraced our vision of LBA Woods as a park rather than housing developments. She worked tirelessly and effectively with our coalition, with her fellow City Councilmembers, City Staff, Parks Department, and other key decision makers to develop the strategy to help us save the woods and to make the necessary compromises to do so.
We are deeply grateful to Jeannine Roe for her steadfast commitment to balancing the many and often conflicting needs of our rapidly growing city. Protecting our natural landscapes while accommodating population growth is one of the greatest challenges we face in the coming years; Jeannine is our smart-growth candidate and we need her voice on City Council.
