Mr. Chichester is the Geographic Response Plans Lead for the Washington State Department of Ecology. Geographic Response Plans are intended to identify resources at risk from oil spills and to prioritize strategies to reduce injuries to those resources. The public is encouraged to come learn more about the risk of oil spills in our area and the State’s plans to respond to such a spill, including spills from oil trains.
A short meeting of the 2nd Legislative District Democrats will follow the presentation.”
