A candidate for State Representative Pos. 1, Legislative District 44 in the 2010 Washington General Election
On this race: Elected Experience: Hans works full-time representing you in Olympia, where he is well known and respected for his independence and common-sense leadership. He chairs the Capital Budget Committee.
Other Professional Experience: Hans owned, operated and managed a septic-design business for over 10 years and a boat repair shop before that.
Education: Hans graduated from the University of Washington and earned a masters degree from Western Washington University. He remains a student of history.
Community Service: Hans has served as a volunteer firefighter, on several school levy committees and the Snohomish County Planning Commission. He also organizes bike and kayak trips, and enjoys gardening with neighbors.
Statement: The past few years have been too hard for too many: too many dreams dashed, retirements upended and businesses shuttered (those that weren’t “too big to fail”). I’m determined to right these wrongs, and to fight them from happening again in the future. Working for you, I have fought for well-paying jobs, quality education, common-sense energy policies and government accountability. My record is strong, but there is more to do. Today’s challenges require leadership and determination.
I will continue to put forward sensible ideas to create jobs and ensure our kids receive top notch education to achieve a better future.
