Statement: This is a critical time. We must make the tough decisions to move our economy forward, or risk losing all we love about our state. A slow recovery means a strong economy is critical to Kitsap. Working families need secure jobs paying a living wage. We need access to affordable health care; our kids must have quality schools. It's time to put Kitsap first in jobs, schools, health care and transportation. Sherry Appleton has the experience to get the job done. "It continues to be an honor to represent you and I will fight for Kitsap."
