Prototypes of all-transistor AM radio receivers were demonstrated, but were really only laboratory curiosities. However, in Shockley developed a radically different type of solid-state amplifier which became known as the bipolar junction "transistor". Although it works on a completely different principle to the point-contact "transistor"this is the device which is most commonly referred to as simply a "transistor" today. Morgan Sparks made the bipolar junction transistor into a practical device.
We all share this beautiful place called Whatcom County and I will work hard to represent everyone who calls it home. Values-based decision making As Tribal Chair of Lummi Nation, as your Whatcom County Councilmember and as your Senator I look at every decision through a lens of what is best for Whatcom County families and what will make life better for future generations.
Shellfish harvesters work hard and add to our economy. But in order to harvest shellfish they need clean water. We had several years when the water was not clean enough to harvest clams and they suffered financial losses and uncertainty.
The quickest way for me, as Tribal Chair, to fix this problem would have been litigation but suing people who live in our community and whose children attend school together, was not the right solution for everyone.
It was important to me that relationships not be harmed and that we all ended up stronger, as a community. So I sat down with the farmers and talked.
It took awhile to build trust, but over time those relationships were built and a solution was reached. I was honored to work on this and respect the willingness of farmers and their families to sit down with us and work this through. This is a historic agreement that strengthened our communities and solved a long-standing problem.
Taking the time and making the effort to find similar approaches in other matters is what Olympia needs. Whatcom County has been a donor county of gas taxes — the money invested here rarely makes its way back for repairing our roads and bridges.
That is not right. Making sure we bring more road projects to our region is one of my priorities. I made sure Olympia funded an interchange project to improve safety and opportunities for business development at Slater Road.
I look forward to working with Blaine, Ferndale, Lynden and Whatcom County on their critical long-range road improvement and maintenance needs. High-speed Internet in Rural Communities Broadband high speed internet is critical for attracting new employers, reducing the opportunity gap for our children especially in rural schools, and supporting existing small businesses and our quality of life.
Some areas have broadband internet service, but at a premium price that is often cost-prohibitive for small businesses or families.
Our laws currently prevent this. Water Certainty for the Future I believe we need a holistic solution to our water problems. Water is scarce in most creeks and parts of rivers in late summer and fall when salmon are returning to spawn.
Shellfish beds in Whatcom County and other parts of the state a frequently closed due to excess bacteria pollution upstream. Habitat for salmon and wildlife in and around streams is damaged. Although the state finally met their obligation to fully fund K public education, I believe in providing stronger and more comprehensive early learning opportunities for all families.
Early learning, or pre-birth-to-Kindergarten programs, are proven to set our children up for success and have shown improved literacy rates. Our education system should also provide multiple career path options for students aside from the four-year college degree.
As Chairman of Lummi, I encountered many students graduating from Northwest Indian College with degrees in Tribal Governance who came to my office seeking work.
Unfortunately, there were more students than positions available. Safe, Healthy Housing Everyone should have the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy home regardless of their level of income.
Affordable housing is one of our biggest challenges as a state and I will do all I can to: Allow local governments to generate revenue through a sales tax dedicated to affordable housing that would be credited back from the state. Legislation was introduced this past year to do this, but died in committee.
On the County Council and as Tribal Chair, I talk with everyone to hear all perspectives in order to make decisions.
I support public disclosure legislation that requires full transparency for the Senate and House and he will listen to every citizen who shares their thoughts with an open mind. When it comes to how our government is spending our hard-earned tax dollars, I believe in taking a holistic look at who is paying and whether the responsibility is equitably distributed.
Low and middle income earners are shouldering the majority of the tax responsibility through property and sales taxes. I would like to see our tax code overhauled so that it shares our tax payments more fairly and efficiently. Job Creation Through initiatives like funding public and affordable high-speed broadband internet service and improved roads and bridges, I plan to create jobs here in Whatcom County.
Small and local businesses will thrive if we provide broadband internet service at an affordable price throughout the community. Repairing and building new roads and bridges will create sustainable family-wage jobs and enable local businesses to expand their manufacturing and transportation operations.
I also believe in incentivizing jobs of the 21st century that move us toward a clean energy future.This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia's quality metin2sell.com specific problem is: the article is full of internal contradictions, outdated/inaccurate information, and poor writing Please help improve this article if you can.
