Statement: "We need to send conservatives to Olympia, not more tax-and-spend career politicians." In these tough economic times, we need Cathy Dahlquist's conservative voice in Olympia fighting job-killing tax increases and deficit spending. "More money doesn't mean better government. Government must live within its means just like we do in the real world." As School Board President, Cathy's leadership resulted in increased test scores and decreased spending while maintaining a balanced budget.
"We've seen too many backroom deals and secret negotiations. We need a more transparent process." Cathy will take her passion for ethical, open government to Olympia.
