WSRP Chairman Susan Hutchison sent out the following message on October 28:
Hillary Clinton is bad enough. But the “other Hilary” is just as bad. That’s Hilary Franz – the progressive environmentalist who is the Democrats’ candidate for Commissioner of Public Lands.
Hilary Franz served on the board of an organization headed by an EarthFirst! member who advocates eco-terrorist methods such as sabotage and tree-spiking. She also led the radical anti-growth group Futurewise, and under her leadership Futurewise filed 31 lawsuits against at least ten counties. And Peter Goldman, an environmental extremist, has given over $125,000 to PACs that are campaigning for Franz.
In contrast, Republican candidate Steve McLaughlin is a retired Navy officer who drafted the Kosovo peacekeeping plan. He has worked on the front-lines providing disaster relief after the Oso landslide and Eastern Washington wildfires. He’s even led the effort to preserve an old growth forest. He has been endorsed by a variety of groups including the Stillaguamish Tribe, IBEW, Farm Bureau, AWB, Association of Western Pulp & Paper Workers, and the Washington Machinists Council. McLaughlin also has an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association.
When comparing the candidates, it’s no contest – the choice is clear: Republican Steve McLaughlin for Commissioner of Public Lands.
