Don Moos happily worked for our future

The term “statesman” isn’t used much these days, not as it once was understood, to describe a leader adept at using the tools of politics and government for constructive purposes. Politics is now mostly destructive, a game to tear down, not build up, and so there are not many, if any, who deserve the label. Don Moos I’m sure thought that a pity. Don Moos was a statesman.

This he proved with a lifetime of effort, from the wheat fields of Lincoln County to Olympia, building institutions and shaping law to advance agriculture, his first profession and his native state’s largest industry. He then went on to head three state agencies, in times of great conflict and crisis, always working with his eye on a better future.
