Larsen wins

After trailing his opponent on election night, U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen (D-Arlington) steadily gained ground against John Koster, who had hoped to ride the national Republican tide that ousted dozens of incumbent Democrats and reclaimed a GOP majority in Congress. Larsen ended up with 50.3 percent of the vote, compared with Koster’s 49.7 percent. The 2nd District spans the northern part of Western Washington from just north of Seattle to the border with Canada, and includes the San Juan Islands. Larsen had said just two days after the election: “I remain optimistic that when every vote is counted, I will stay on top.” The five-term congressman is pictured above with a staffer during a 2008 tour of Dakota Creek Industries in Anacortes.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
