Senator Maria Cantwell Receives Award for Animal Welfare Work
MARCH 8, 2010
My husband worked for her years and years ago, when she was just a State representative. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) received the Humane Society’s Legislative Leader award for her leadership in protecting animals. She is a US Senator from our home state of Washington. The Humane Society of the United States cited Senator Cantwell’s efforts to improve marine mammal rescue capability, including such challenges as disentangling marine mammals from fishing nets.
