u 2010 Washington Primary Election

Justin Van Dyk

A candidate for State Representative Pos. 1, Legislative District 40 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Democrat

On this race: Elected Experience: Precinct Committee Officer for 29th Legislative district

Other Professional Experience: My grandfather and father were both State Representatives for 42nd Legislative District and dairy farmers, so I can draw upon their experience which was shared with me to help this great state we live in.

Education: College Student

Community Service: I've volunteered my time with American Cancer Society and was apart of the Young Democrats of Washington State where we held get out the vote events and many other events to help out the community.

Statement: This election presents a unique opportunity to elect someone that can bring a fresh perspective to the Washington legislature. I'll make sure Washington would be at the forefront of green jobs and increase funding for education and training to attract businesses to Washington.

I’d work to reform Washington’s tax code as it ranks dead last in fairness. The middle class currently pays four times the tax rate compared to the wealthy. A fair income tax would allow tax cuts for the majority of state residents and eliminate the B&O tax for small businesses.
