I urge District 106 voters to support Patrick Norton in the June 12 Democratic primary. As a former state representative and former deputy commissioner of the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, I knew and worked with Pat for 22 years in his role as a nonpartisan legislative analyst, including his six years as director of the Legislature’s Office of Policy and Legal Analysis. During my years as chairman of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Pat worked tirelessly with us on some of the toughest environmental issues faced by the state. Also, as chairman of the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee, I relied on Pat’s professional assistance in committee staffing, policy analysis and his knowledge of fish and wildlife laws. Pat understands how the Legislature works. He would be an outstanding representative for District 106 and I urge your vote for Pat in the primary.
