A candidate for State Representative Pos. 2, Legislative District 21 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election
Elected Experience: President Edmonds Downtown Retailers
Other Professional Experience: 40 years of marketing and management in seven industries; contract negotiations, budgeting and production. I have owned three small businesses during the last 30 years that we have lived in the district. I am developing an information website for seniors: myseniorside.com.
Education: Paula and I attended the University of Washington. We put three children thru the Edmonds School District.

Statement: My platform is an advocacy of the senior generation. As seniors, we have a major impact on the state. A House Committee on Aging should provide protection for our seniors' needs. Medicaid, prescription prices, insurance discrimination, fraud, property tax discounts, senior housing and jobs for seniors need to be priorities. We all have a critical interest in senior issues because you are one, know one or are going to be one!
Political parties have torn us down the middle. As a moderate independent, I believe the repair can only be made from the middle, not from the extreme sides.
