Statement: With the future of our state and nation at stake, politicians continue to behave as if their actions don't have consequences. They continue spending more money than they have, raising taxes and regulating our businesses and property into obscurity. Our elected officials have forgotten that it is we the people who allow them to govern, expecting them to secure our rights, not legislate them away. I will support market-based solutions that allow the private sector to create jobs, build strong businesses, and ensure a strong economy for Washington State. I would be honored to have your vote.
