J. T. Wilcox

A candidate for State Representative Pos. 2, Legislative District 02 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Republican

On this race:

Elected Experience: No information submitted

Professional Experience:  At age seven JT Wilcox started working on the family farm and eventually became the Chief Financial Officer.  He helped grow a local business into one serving a seven state region.  JT chaired the national "Got Milk" campaign, the state poultry association and the Holstein association. 

Education:   JT attended Yelm High School and Graduated from WSU

Community Service: JT and his wife Kathy still live on the family farm where they are raising three kids: Jimmie, Donnie and Katie.  Kathy is a school teacher. The family attends Yelm Methodist Church.  JT was a volunteer fireman and is a member of the lions club.

Statement: Our state government needs new leadership. 100 years ago my family founded Wilcox Family Farms.  To survive this long as a family business has required exactly the values we need in the legislature: commonsense, fiscal conservatism and the willingness to make tough decisions.

This is why I'm challenging a 16 year incumbent.   For years the legislature has spent too much, taxed too heavily and killed jobs through over regulation.  In contrast, I have 20 years of experience balancing budgets, controlling costs and creating jobs. As your representative I will: support public schools, improve our transportation system and protect private property.
