  • Travis Couture for WA Senate - Tourism, Economic Development and the Environment

    Travis Couture outlines environmental issues within Washington's 35th District which includes parts of the Olympic Peninsula, Hood Canal and South Puget Sound (South Kitsap, North Thurston, and Mason Counties). Washington is the only state in the US that has zero state funding for tourism. It was cut completely during the economic downturn, now it's up to local businesses. My opponent as county commissioner cut funding to Mason County's 20 beautiful parks by $600k ($1.2 million total including matching federal grant funds lost) to pay down the Belfair sewer debt. He has even proposed a similar plan to take the Mason County lodging tax, which is the only fund for promoting county fairs and festivals, and using it to pay for county expenses. We need to make tourism more of a priority, not less.

  • Uncover Washington's Wild Side

    Situated between the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains in Mason County, Washington; Hood Canal is filled with world-class activities like SCUBA and skydiving, a thriving culinary scene sampling heavily from locally-sourced and wild-caught fare, an active social calendar packed with live music and community events and plenty of places to hide away from it all when you just want the world to yourself. A short jump from Seattle by way of the Bremerton Ferry is all it takes: your next adventure is right around the corner.

    Hood Canal is Washington's wild side. And it's here for you when you're ready to discover yours.
