Full background, nice guy

I am honored to serve as a co-chair, along with Nancy Isserlis and Sharon Smith, of the Campaign to Elect Andy Billig as our 3rd District state representative. Making the decision to support Andy and serve on his campaign was easy, based on his experience.

Andy has had success in business, serving for 18 years as the president of the Spokane Indians baseball club. Andy has been a committed volunteer, serving on numerous boards including the YMCA and city of Spokane’s Human Services Advisory Board, and volunteering to coach youth sports and as a Big Brother.

Andy has been a student of government and public process for literally decades, from his degree at Georgetown University, to his involvement representing his business and our community in Olympia, to serving on the Mayor’s Citizen’s Financial Advisory Committee.

Now, Andy wants to take this varied experience and use it to serve the interests of Spokane’s 3rd District, focusing on education, job creation and quality of life issues.

And finally, to wrap it all up, Andy is an exceedingly nice guy. I don’t think that even Doug Clark could dislike him! I’m proud to be supporting Andy and believe he deserves your vote.

Gage Stromberg
