Jon Russell

A candidate for State Representative Pos. 1, Legislative District 18 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Republican

On this race:

Elected Experience: As City Councilman, I passed E-verify to keep taxpayer contracts from illegal aliens and I have fought government corruption, even within my own political party.

Other Professional Experience: Owner of Columbia Gorge Medical Center, a family medical clinic. Like Attorney General Rob McKenna, I will work on the state level to stop Obama’s federal takeover of your healthcare.

Education: I earned my degree from Thomas Edison State College

Community Service: I have served on the Board of Directors for the Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce, Salvation Army and Washougal Schools Foundation. Member of the National Rifle Association and the only pro-life endorsed candidate 

Statement: Government must live within its means, as we do in our homes and businesses. I will reduce the size of government by making deep cuts in nonessential spending. I have implemented three balanced budgets and cut property taxes; I know how to get it done.

As State Representative, I will reintroduce term limits and advance the Founding Fathers' view of the Constitution. This is your seat in the legislature and I will stand firm on your behalf. With God's help, support from my wife and children, and your vote, I will serve you with honor.
