The Hunters Heritage Council has named Larry Hoff Legislator of the year for 2020. Their PAC has also endorsed Hoff for reelection as State Representative in the 18th Legislative district.
“I was raised with the heritage of hunting and conservation. I have fought hard to represent hunters and conservationists and protect their rights to engage in the sports they love. To have my efforts recognized by The Hunter’s Heritage Council is a high honor,” Hoff said.
According to their website, “In Washington State, there is only one PAC that works to elect pro-hunting candidates at the state and local level and that is the Hunters Heritage Council PAC. HHC PAC is dependent on the generosity of hunters, sportsmen and their organizations for its funding.”
The Clark County Association of Realtors has endorsed Larry Hoff for State Representative in the 18th Legislative district. Larry was informed of the endorsement by The Association’s Public Affairs Director, Rian Davis in a phone call Thursday.
“The Clark County Association of Realtors is one of the most important players in protecting private property rights and addressing housing affordability here in Clark County,” Hoff said. “I am deeply honored that the association has decided that I am the better choice when it comes to representing the people on these critical issues.”
According to their website; “One of the key services offered to members by the Clark County Association of REALTOR® is research and information on governmental activities, and representation before local governments by Government Affairs Committee Members and a Governmental Affairs Consultant (GAC).
CCAR government action policies are developed through the Governmental Affairs Committee and reported to and approved by the CCAR Board of Directors. CCAR positions and policies in support of private property rights and to the right of REALTORS® to conduct business are advanced pro-actively through contact with public officials, BOD resolutions, press releases, position papers and information forums and testimony before public bodies.
The objective of the policies is to increase REALTOR® visibility within governmental entities and with the public, influence change when appropriate to ensure the continued protection of property rights, and support reasonable community planning and infrastructure development to promote affordable housing.”
An efficient and viable transportation system is essential for the economic and social well-being of our community. One of our region’s biggest transportation challenges is addressing the congestion associated with crossing the Columbia River. Whether making this crossing for commuting to work, engaging in commerce, or for entertainment/social reasons, our citizens are spending far too much of their precious time in traffic. There is no one easy fix to this problem, but rather a series of immediate and long-term decisions and actions.
Our local State Legislators have initiated the first step to disentangle this knot by coming together and passing legislation that begins the process of replacing the inadequate and outmoded I-5 bridge. They also, in this legislation, provided a pathway to address the very real long-term need to begin the discussion and planning for additional crossings and corridors for the future.
I whole heartedly support these efforts, and look forward, as your next State Representative of the 18th District, to collaborating with the rest of our local delegation (and Oregon, who now seems willing to join us at the table) in the pursuit of solving our transportation challenges.
