Tim Hamilton is a life-long resident of Grays Harbor and recognized throughout North America as an expert on the petroleum distribution system testifying before state legislatures across the country and in Congress.
Tim has interacted with federal government regulatory agencies including the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Department of Energy (DOE), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the congressional General Accounting Office (GAO). On the state level, he has served by invitation of the Department or appointment by the Governor to advisory councils for the Pollution Liability Insurance Agency (PLIA), Department of Agriculture (WDA, Weights & Measures), Department of Ecology (DOE), and Department of Licensing (DOL).
Tim's "big thing" is government transparency and insuring the processes used to set regulations allows the public an ability to practice citizenship in an effective manner. He spends his spare time with Mary and their grandchildren at the home they built together outside McCleary. When time allows, he likes to get out of the office built above the garage and into a boat on coastal waters and rivers. While not a common event, he is occasionally lucky enough to actually catch a fish. (Tim's resume)
