Larsen Statement on Third Anniversary of the Oso Mudslide

Washington, DC, March 22, 2017

Ahead of the third anniversary of the Oso mudslide, Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) released the following statement:

“In the three years since the tragedy, the community has shown its strength, resilience and compassion – pulling together through the kindness of neighbors, the bravery of first responders and volunteers, and the hard work of local leaders like the economic development plan advancing as part of the America's Best Communities competition. The mudslide that killed 43 people forever changed Oso, Darrington, Arlington and the surrounding community. While Oso has come a long way since 2014, the tragedy and those who lost their lives will never be forgotten.”
