State Senator Lynn DeCoite: A Farmer, a Hunter, a Grandmother, a Senator
Manage episode 315444089 series 2968224
State Senator Lynn DeCoite is a third generation homestead farmer who grows purple sweet potatoes when she is not traveling from island to island representing her constituents in the so-called “canoe district”. She is also a proud grandmother of two, a devoted member of her community and an active hunter, who says she often has to remember to wash the blood of her hands before starting work for the day.
In this episode of The People’s People, Senator DeCoite talks about how she ended up becoming an elected official, even though she “hated politics” and tell stories from her life, like about the first time she got on an airplane and flew to the mainland, with her soon-to-be husband.
