BATTLE GROUND, WA, Nov. 29, 2017 (Local News) -This is a sad day for Camas and Southwest Washington. The paper mill is what built Camas. For generations, the mill has provided a steady paycheck for mortgage payments, car payments, putting food on the table, raising children and creating a stable economy for a better life in our region.

Many of my friends, including my brother, have built their careers working at the Camas mill. This is very personal for me, my neighbors and local businesses — many who have relied upon the income which has flowed through our community from the mill.

I’m very proud in recent years that Georgia-Pacific has invested in the Camas mill to ensure it exceeds environmental standards. They’ve spent tens of millions of dollars to create clean emissions and a clean plant. As a result, Camas has become a very desirable place to live and Georgia-Pacific has been a very good neighbor and employer.
