J. T. Wilcox
A candidate for State Representative Pos. 2, Legislative District 02 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election
On this race:
Elected Experience: No information submitted
Professional Experience: At age seven JT Wilcox started working on the family farm and eventually became the Chief Financial Officer. He helped grow a local business into one serving a seven state region. JT chaired the national "Got Milk" campaign, the state poultry association and the Holstein association.
Education: JT attended Yelm High School and Graduated from WSU
Community Service: JT and his wife Kathy still live on the family farm where they are raising three kids: Jimmie, Donnie and Katie. Kathy is a school teacher. The family attends Yelm Methodist Church. JT was a volunteer fireman and is a member of the lions club.
Statement: Our state government needs new leadership. 100 years ago my family founded Wilcox Family Farms. To survive this long as a family business has required exactly the values we need in the legislature: commonsense, fiscal conservatism and the willingness to make tough decisions.
This is why I'm challenging a 16 year incumbent. For years the legislature has spent too much, taxed too heavily and killed jobs through over regulation. In contrast, I have 20 years of experience balancing budgets, controlling costs and creating jobs. As your representative I will: support public schools, improve our transportation system and protect private property.
