A candidate for State Representative Pos. 2, Legislative District 31 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election
On this race:
Elected Experience: None
Other Professional Experience: I was most recently employed as an Enumerator at the US Census Bureau. I have also held various other temporary jobs.
Education: I earned an Associates of Arts with High Honors from Green River Community College, and am currently attending the University of Washington at Tacoma with a major in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.
Community Service: I am active in my church (Lake Tapps Community Church). I have also worked with youth through Auburn Valley YMCA and Bonney Lake Community Church.
Statement: I am running because I believe lobbyists wield too much power in Olympia. I have pledged not to take any money from lobbying groups. Because of this stand, I have less money for advertising and publicity than other political candidates. But I intend to show the politicians that hard work and principles can win out over big money. My principles are simple: less government spending, less regulations, and less taxation. If I am so fortunate as to be elected, I promise not to back down from these principles and to always be a voice for individual liberty within government.
