Sep 5, 2007

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) released the following statement today on the announcement that Georgia-Pacific will be closing their Bellingham tissue mill:

“Georgia-Pacific has been part of our community for 44 years. The closure of the Bellingham mill is sad news not only for the people who work there and their families, but for the City of Bellingham and for Whatcom County. I want to send a message to the 210 Georgia-Pacific workers who will lose their jobs: I will do everything I can to help you get back on your feet and back to work.”
