A candidate for State Senator, Legislative District 38 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Democrat

Statement: In challenging times, we need new leadership and innovative thinking that will deliver for local families. Nick Harper will bring the right mix of private sector and non-profit experience to the State Senate. Nick will get results, for a change. A lifelong Puget Sound resident, Nick will fight for good jobs and a stronger economy, dedicated funding for our schools and colleges, respect and benefits for military families, and transportation solutions that work. Most importantly, Nick will always be fighting for us.  

This year the legislature failed to close tax loopholes for Wall Street banks, while local businesses struggle. Critical services are suffering. Who is looking out for our priorities, and creating opportunities for entrepreneurs and local workers?   

An attorney and business leader who has worked to improve our real estate and construction industries, Nick now protects farmland and open space for a regional land conservancy. He understands balance and working for solutions, not political gain.

Nick is endorsed by Rep. John McCoy, Rep. Hans Dunshee, Rep. Marko Liias, Snohomish County Councilmember Brian Sullivan, union members and business leaders, developers and conservationists, and dozens of community leaders. Nick and his wife Lacey live in Everett.
