"The Suquamish Tribe proudly endorses Patrick DePoe for Washington State Lands Commissioner.  Patrick has spent his life fighting to protect the lands and waters of Washington.  Patrick’s ability to bring people together to find common ground and real solutions is very much needed in this challenging time as impacts from climate change are growing more present each day.  We need leaders who will fight for clean water for our salmon, breathable air for our communities, and safe lands to practice our treaty rights upon and Patrick DePoe is that leader."
