The Whatcom County Council is considering passing a study to kill jobs at Cherry Point and cut education funding for schools in our communities.

The study written into the Cherry Point UGA amendment is the first step in the County Council’s attempts to harm Cherry Point stakeholders and it will have a severe impact on their ability to be flexible, grow, create new family-wage jobs, and fund education and other important social services.

The Whatcom Business Alliance and Cherry Point stakeholders are united in their opposition to County Council efforts to kill family-wage jobs and cut education funding to schools in our communities.
