Tired of incumbents

I will not be voting for any incumbents, except for state Sen. Brian Dansel. Incumbents have done absolutely nothing for us. Can you honestly look at your daily life and find one single thing an incumbent has done for you?

I know all of our elected officials personally. I’m a Republican, but I no longer care about party affiliation. I want someone who will get something done; not for them, but for us. I would be willing to give a new person a chance.

I am particularly disappointed in Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Shelly Short. I have helped them in past campaigns. However, they haven’t done anything for us. Since 2004, McMorris Rodgers takes credit for the North Spokane Corridor and Fairchild Air Force Base. Are there any other accomplishments besides getting those or getting Vaagen Brothers Lumber a $30 million contract? How does any of that help me or you?

I will not vote for an incumbent. I will give a new person a chance, and if that doesn’t work out, then I will vote for someone else in two years. I am so tired of incumbents who only want to continue their own careers at our expense.

Please vote!
