Conversations on Washington's future quality of life

By Ted Sturdevant, Ecology Director

Today, I am launching a new Web page, "Conversations on Washington's Future". I am hoping it will help stimulate a statewide conversation about what quality of life means to the people of Washington in the 21st century.

Most of us would agree that quality of life includes an economy in which we can all prosper, strong communities and a healthy environment. The question — and it is a challenging one — is how best to achieve and protect that quality of life.

About every week, I will share my thoughts on specific topics that affect us all, and how solving some of our thorniest issues may require some new thinking. It certainly requires us to honor differing viewpoints and realize how actions in all of these areas — the environment, the economy and communities — are intertwined.

More and more, I have seen solutions that work well for all parties, and I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for our state.
