What’s Cantwell done?


I would like to know what Sen. Maria Cantwell has done for Eastern Washington. What has she done for rural communities or small businesses? She claims credit for keeping Boeing in our state, but I ask is that the same Boeing that built a new plant in South Carolina instead of Eastern Washington?

In her ads, she claims she is responsible for starting science classes at the college level. I’m a school board director, and she is not responsible for this. It was a national, federally funded program on which her single vote had no impact. She has claimed responsibility for renewable battery programs that created 600 jobs, which eventually disappeared.

I’m tired of politicians claiming credit for things that haven’t happened or would have happened anyway. What has she done for Eastern Washington? I will not be voting for Maria Cantwell.
