Tim Benn wants to change that. Have we seen more teachers or police because of the stimulus? Jeff Holy wants to help. The costs of education, utilities and cable have gone up. Has your income? Michael Baumgartner knows how to fix it. Hunger and homelessness have gone up? Clint Didier has a solution.

Americans focus on the presidential election when they should be looking at current policies, jobs that will feed your neighbors. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has been resisting those failed policy pressures in Washington. Who will protect your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

I believe these candidates will. Learn about these candidates. You must register to vote now, and then send in your ballot.
