Quote "What makes living in the Pacific Northwest so special is the natural environment that surrounds us. The 1st congressional district is home to some of our nation’s most beautiful forests, mountains and waterways. We also have some of the most fertile agricultural land. Taking care of our natural resources and protecting our environment is critical to protecting the quality of life we cherish. This means policies to keep our air and water clean. We must also manage our water responsibly as it is critical for our local farms and for generating the electricity that powers our economy."


Leadership: Representative DelBene knows that investing in clean, renewable energy is the best way to grow the economy while protecting our natural resources and establishing energy independence. This is a critical consideration for Washington State where greenhouse gas-driven ocean acidification is threatening the state’s oyster farming industry and its 3,200 jobs. Ocean Champions is excited to have a representative such as Delbene representing an area of Washington that boasts an incredibly biodiverse and valuable coastline.
