Text from Sonya Carlson's website-

 

After working for Community Energy Project and other non-profits, I decided to dive into political work.

I worked as Rep. Phil Barnhart’s Chief of Staff for five years. During that time, I forged working relationships with both Democratic and Republican legislators.  I helped pass legislation that:

 

  • Improved the transparency of tax credits.

  • Removed a loophole that allowed insurance companies to get out of paying for addiction treatment when covered people needed it most and had the highest likelihood of success.

  • Built a coalition of legislators to obtain $4 million in state funding to build the Lebanon Veterans Home. The additional funding was needed because the Federal government changed the building design midway through the project.

 

EWEB Commissioners are primarily responsible for setting policy and making investment decisions. Diverse boards are more successful, because they represent a wider variety of viewpoints and thus foresee more risks and opportunities than less diverse boards.  It is time to elect a common-sense woman to the board who can bridge divides, has experience setting policy, and training to analyze if a new investment will bring long-term benefit and match our community’s values.
