Chase helps people

I am very cynical about politicians, but when it comes to Rob Chase, he helped me personally. Out of all the city, county and state politicians that I contacted, he was the only one who not only responded to my letter, but did something to help.

Because of his efforts, I have now been able to catch up on my back taxes by about 70 percent of what was owed. I was given a chance to save my home from foreclosure, and I have been able to.

Chase is a real person, not a plastic politician with one-liners and form letters. He has my vote for Spokane County treasurer, and my gratitude. He truly stands and works for the taxpayer.

Thanks, Rob Chase.
