Here are some quotes from our board members:

  • I am committed to the PCMRC because it offers me an unparalleled  opportunity to do public service while working to protect  both the economic  base and the ecological systems of southwest Washington.” – Doug Kess
  • Fishing has been good to me providing a quality of life not found in most areas and the Pacific County MRC provides a way to give back to our community, to help protect the marine environment, and give the local marine dependent residents a strong voice moving into the future to maintain that quality of life and access to our abundant natural resources we all enjoy for the next generation.”- Dale Beasley
  • Willapa NWR shares many of the concerns of the PCMRC regarding marine and estuarine issues and I’d like to part of the committee and partnership that finds creative solutions to benefit our wildlife, habitats and natural resources.”- Jackie Ferrier
  • I’m serving on the MRC because I believe Pacific County’s marine natural resources are critical to our history, culture, and economics and I want to help preserve them for future generations.” – Brian Sheldon
  • “Belonging to the MRC provides a great outreach opportunity for WSU, a good connection to science and resource issue in the region, and a way to help resolve complex resource  issues. “- Kim Patten
