On ‘The Impact’ tonight: Election results and wolf update

On this week’s edition of “The Impact,” we wrap up the election results and look at how it will shape the 2015 Legislature.

Reporters Jordan Schrader of The News Tribune and Jerry Cornfield of The Everett Herald join us to talk about the results of key legislative races, and what it means for the upcoming session.

Plus, David Ware of the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife talks about the latest tensions over Washington’s wolf recovery effort.

The department is seeking a dozen citizen candidates to serve a two-year term on the Wolf Advisory Group, a committee created last year to advise the department on wolf recovery and management. The group currently has nine members representing ranchers, wolf advocates and hunters. The term for the current members expires at the end of the year.

Applications must be submitted in writing and include the following:
  • The applicant or nominee’s name, address, telephone number, and email address
  • People or groups making nominations must also submit their own names and contact information
  • The candidate’s relevant experience, organizational affiliations, and reasons why he or she would be an effective advisory group member
  • His or her familiarity with Washington’s Wolf Conservation and Management Plan and current wolf recovery status
  • His or her experience in collaborating with people who have different values

Nominations must be postmarked by 5 p.m. on Nov. 14 and addressed to Dave Ware, Game Division Manager at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA 98501-1091 or via email to [email protected].
