I want you to know a bit about Sharon Shewmake who is running to be our senator in the 42nd District. I have been homeless for nearly 3½ years. I have never been an abuser of any substance nor have I ever failed to pay my rent on time. Still I became homeless because of a vicious, lawless and unreasonable landlord. Ms. Shewmake has helped me to negotiate the difficulties I have encountered many times while homeless. She has been very generous with her time and attention to my issues. She is a remarkably caring person with a delightful sense of humor and a down-to-earth view of the problems Whatcom County needs to address. I am sure that whether you live on one of our farms, in the cities in the 42nd District or are facing difficulties caused by the pandemic or those other "slings and arrows" that life throws at us all, we cannot do better than Sharon Shewmake as our Senator.
