Statement: As a former teacher, I know jobs and education are key to building a strong economy. I continue to push for investment in our schools and workforce training. Through legislative action, I led on making the Washington Aerospace Training and Research Center a reality in this area. I was able to bring a Bachelor of Science nursing program to Everett CC University Center that will train badly needed health care employees.
Tough times require tough decision makers who make the most of scarce resources. I ask for your support to continue working for jobs, schools and a stronger economic future.
