Brian Wurts

A candidate for State Representative Pos. 2, Legislative District 28 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Republican

On this race:

Elected Experience: I have not sought for or held public office. I am the President of the Lakewood Police Independent Guild and serve on the statewide board of WACOPS in Olympia.

Other Professional Experience: President of a small not for profit business

Education: Attended K-12 in the Clover Park school district. CWU at the Pierce College branch.

Community Service: I volunteered for the Pierce County Sheriff's Department in the Lakewood precinct for four years prior to becoming an officer. I have also worked to raise money for Washington State Special Olympics and served as the President of the Lakewood Police Independent Guild Charity Fund. 

Statement: It's time for state government to live within our dollars and budget accordingly, stop hiking our taxes and get serious about private sector job creation. My pledge to you is to craft an affordable, sustainable budget while protecting our priorities, like quality schools and public safety. The incumbent voted to raise taxes and repealed a tax-limiting law that you've approved many times.

As a Lakewood officer, I will bring fourteen years of experience protecting our community and common sense to Olympia. I'm proud to be endorsed by Attorney General Rob McKenna, police officers, and prosecutors.
