u 2010 Washington Primary Election

Derek Stanford

A candidate for State Representative Pos. 1, Legislative District 01 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Democrat

On this race: Elected Experience: No information submitted

Other Professional Experience: I am currently the Director of Analytics at a local telecommunications company, and I am a former small business owner, specializing in statistical analysis and consulting.

Education: 1999 PhD, Statistics, University of Washington

Community Service: I am the Membership Chair for the Washington Alliance of Technology Workers, and I have been active with my local food bank, helping those in need.

Statement: I'm running for State Representative because I believe Olympia can do better.  I'm not a politician.  Like you, I work hard every day, pay a mortgage, raise a family, and try to make my community a better place.

It's time for the state to get back to basics - creating jobs, improving public education, and ensuring government is accountable to taxpayers.  As a husband, father, and former small business owner, I know we must make responsible investments in education, including early learning; create opportunities for living wage jobs; and demand that government operate a balanced and sustainable budget.
