Elect Sandy Hershelman

It's kind of ironic that Jefferson County Public Health accepted help from the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, but now my opponent's supporters complain when the MBA donates to my campaign. The free use of its Built Green® materials saved the County thousands as the Jefferson County Home Builders Association worked with the Health Department, through a Department of Ecology grant, to create Built Green® of Jefferson County.


Who's Who in Building Associations?

I'm not the only one in the state whose opponent (or party) is trying to mix up donations by local building associations with those from the Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW). It seems to be the season...

In a nutshell, I am the executive officer of the Jefferson County Home Builders Association. My focus is to support the needs of our very diverse local building industry.

There are 15 other local home building associations in the state, including the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. We all have our charters through the National Association of Home Builders.

Also holding a charter is the BIAW. It is not a parent organization of the other HBAs. As the state organization, it usually focuses on issues of statewide concerns. It offers membership resources, legal aid, legislative lobbying, education, group health insurance plans, and a retrospective ratings program.

Read Political style of BIAW not to JCHBA's liking
(Aug. 29)

Local association staff do not vote or hold offices within the BIAW. As the 2007 chair of the WA Executive Officers Council, I facilitated three meetings for the other local HBA executive officers. We shared common concerns and issues from all across the state, such as affordable housing, regulations, challenges with local governments, dealing with BIAW, tax and employee issues, etc.
