Congratulations on your victories on Tuesday night. While I am sure that you were quick to acknowledge the overwhelming vote by which the 2nd CD has returned you to Congress, I do hope that you were also as keenly aware that the rest of the country had granted you yet a second victory even as the votes were still being counted in Washington State. (In a related note; it was with great satisfaction that I watched the defeat of Richard Pombo in California’s 11th CD.)
With the control of Congress safely back in Democratic hands, the Wild Sky Wilderness Act, for which you (and Senator Patty Murray) have worked so tirelessly for over four years, should finally become a reality early in the 2007 congressional session.
While it is well known that you and I have had occasion to disagree on certain issues, I have never doubted your dedication to the environment and I look forward to the day (hopefully a nice sunny Spring day) when you return to the district to announce the official dedication of this great gift to our future generations; made possible through your hard work and perseverance.(The Wild Sky Wilderness Area)
