Citizen Journalist • Member since May 19, 2013

Terry came to our county from New York, seeking the fabled Pacific Northwest clean environment and was shocked at the rampant abuses she found here. Terry wrote 15 articles from 2013 to 2015 for Northwest Citizen. She was an attorney and she was also passionately concerned with Whatcom County environmental issues - those actions and government sanctioned programs that destroyed people and natural areas. She died in July 2023, age 67.
