Eastern Washington and Washington D.C.

During the seemingly never-ending presidential campaign, Mr. Obama made a visit the town of Pendleton, OR. He was asked a local question and was unable to give an informed answer. That’s ok, he couldn’t possibly know about every little thing, I would definitely cut him some slack. In fact, it’s probably a good thing that he was stumped when asked. You know how when you miss a word in the 4th grade Spelling Bee and consequently you come in second place, you NEVER, EVER again forget how to spell that word? That’s probably how Obama will look at Hanford.

Now that he’s the pres-to-be, they’ve decided he should know all about it. Our senators, Cantwell and Murray, are giving him the scoop.

Murray said she has had “several” conversations with Obama’s transition team about Hanford.

“I look forward to working with the Obama administration to make up for the funding shortfalls of the past eight years, and I am confident they will be responsive to our needs,” Murray said.

Cantwell also has been in touch with the transition team and also is optimistic the new administration will be easier to work with when it comes to Hanford cleanup money.

“The President-elect’s team understands that the current administration is leaving office with far too much cleanup work undone, and we are looking forward to working with the new administration to prioritize Hanford cleanup,” Cantwell said.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
