Jeff Holy, Q&A on 15 topics

JEFF HOLY, Republican Why do you feel that you are the best candidate? Residency. I’ve lived here 30 years, having graduated Gonzaga Law, completed a career with Spokane P.D., raised my family and been involved in the community. I’m part of our community, people and issues. Resume. Local public service, community activity, education, existing legislative relationships, institutional memory, political involvement and public safety are all tools that no other candidates possess. Responsibility. I have big budget experience (Trustee for $6 Billion State Retirement System), I’m a small business owner who understands WA business climate and my work as an attorney teaches me to place other’s interests before my own.
