Statement: As I walk door to door through our neighborhoods, I see the anguish in people's eyes. I listen to countless stories about how they've been affected by the loss of their job. I hear the frustration of parents as they try to deal with the realities of cuts to our public education system. As President of the Federal Way School Board, I know how important our public schools are to our local families. For far too long, our districts needs have been ignored by the Legislature.
As a small businessman, I know what it takes to create the new jobs we need. We can no longer afford excessive and undisciplined spending, coupled with burdensome tax increases. Olympia stands in the way, but I can fix it.
As a husband and father whose family has been affected by crime, I know the importance of public safety to our citizens. As your Senator, I will work vigorously with our police to make sure they have the tools to make our community a peaceful place to live.
It would be an honor to represent you. With your vote, I'll be a clear voice in the Legislature for our community.
