This week host jim justice talks in person (with social distancing outdoors) with Claus Joens about his candidacy for WA State 39 LD House Position 1. Per requirements on public radio, we had to contact his opponent (Robert Sutherland) and give him at least a week to reply about equal time. After at least two weeks and no word, here is Claus' main positions and his background which gives us reason to vote for him. Claus talks about his main points: establishing a state public bank (& why), education (he is a teacher after all), the Snake River, and issues with the Washington State Environmental Protection Agency https://www.epa.gov/aboutepa/epa-washington. Claus' website is https://joens39.com.
