Washington state Legislature: Burying pets in people’s graves

People before pets

After reading “Bill: humans, pets buried in single grave” [Local News, Jan. 14], I have to question state Sen. Ken Jacobsen’s reason for being a Washington senator. It appears he has forgotten he was elected by the citizens to serve their interests, not his own.

We have more important issues to act on in the state of Washington. Sen. Jacobsen needs to stop wasting the precious time of our lawmakers.

I can understand the relationship the senator had with his cat, but if every citizen wanted to pass a bill that put their own interests first, we would never accomplish the larger issues affecting more of the population.

— Kathleen Santti, Mukilteo
