Dellwo has the experience

At a time when the economy is in upheaval and the race for a successful quick fix makes it difficult for many voters and legislators to look beyond the next few months or years, Spokane needs a representative in Olympia who will keep an eye on the future while paving the way for a healthy economy today. That candidate in the 6th Legislative District is Dennis Dellwo.

Dennis is dedicated to restoring our economy by creating and passing legislation that will add to a business- and job-friendly environment in Spokane. But restoring the economy is every candidate’s first promise. I am voting for Dennis this fall because I trust him to protect our future while solving the problems of the present by standing up for women’s rights, access to health care, access to education, for clean energy and the environment.

As someone who has held a state representative seat before, Dennis has the experience and dedication it takes to represent Spokane, and Spokane’s future, in the Capitol. I offer him my whole-hearted support, and I encourage you to do the same.
