Statement: Mark Miloscia is running for re-election to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of governments and schools. Mark opposed all tax increases because he believes true reform, accountability, and sustainable budgets must come first, before raising taxes.

As a parent, grandparent, and volunteer, Mark understands that education, quality jobs, and strong communities must be our top priorities. There's more to do. We can trust Mark to fight the unproductive politicians and interests in Olympia.
