Statement: These are tough times for Washington families. So many people are making tough choices to balance their own budgets. Unfortunately, state government is making it even harder on us by increasing our cost of living. The latest $800 million tax package places another burden on all of us.
Having been educated as an engineer with an MBA, I’m trained to look at issues objectively. However, I’m passionate about this state and the great potential that resides here. It’s time for state government to reflect the will of the people and streamline its operations.
