A large group supporting a new animal shelter for the Tri-Cities described to the Council the poor conditions at the existing shelter.
I’m starting a blog to document Richland politics. I hope you’ll follow along.
A wife, mother and grandmother, Randy has experience in government and business. She’s excited to share her personal and professional experience with Richland, her home for the past 10 years.
When her two girls were very young, Randy worked as an assistant to Maryland state delegate Jennie Forehand, later joining the legislative staff of U.S. Sen. Ernest F. Hollings of South Carolina. She then became a Congressional legislative director, a job few women held at the time, to U.S. Rep. Lane Evans of Illinois.
Randy also has experience running family businesses. She helped her husband, Bob, run a mid-sized oil company that remains in the family to this day, almost 100 years after its founding. Randy has also been a partner in a family-owned commercial property business.
She moved to Richland in 2009 after Bob, an engineer, accepted a transfer to Hanford.
Randy is passionate about the environment.
She is certified in wetland delineation, trained in macroinvertebrate identification, and experienced in stormwater management issues.
For the past three years Randy has introduced Benton County 5th graders to the world of aquatic insects at the annual Salmon Summit. Her Benton County Heritage Garden has been featured on the Academy of Children’s Theatre Garden Tour.
