Columbia County and Cowlitz County have been discovered by the globalists, and they want our resources. In the last 10 years, there has been an onslaught of rich foreign investors and East Coast limited liability, privately held corporations anxious to exploit towns along our rivers.
One doesn’t have to look farther than the old Reynolds plant in Longview, where pollutants have compromised drinking water, or Hanford upriver with its radioactive materials contaminating workers, leaching poison toward the Columbia, or the Harbor superfund sight along the Willamette in Portland to see a history of corporations leaving polluted messes in the wake of their investments; pollution that we the people pay to clean up, (if it ever gets cleaned up). We must elect people who have the understanding that our resource-rich counties and our workers need protection from foreign and limited liability corporations that care only about exploiting our natural resources for gain. Under these stressful pressures, we need the analytical and planning skills of Paulette Lichatowich as Columbia County Commissioner.
