Change in 7th District

It is time for a change to our representation in Olympia. We have an opportunity this November to replace our 7th Legislative District representative and senator. Our incumbents seem to place investors and corporations ahead of us and our neighbors.

Our current representatives are sponsors of HB 2195. This bill, if passed in its present form, would transfer a portion of the property tax burden from investors and corporations to current residents. Our current state senator is holding the capital budget hostage to ill-conceived changes to the current water rights law proposed in SB 5794 that would likely impair surface water flow in the spring and fall. A second bill, SB 5789, supported by our state senator would add expenses for analysis of water availability to the Department of Ecology and to our counties’ comprehensive plans.

I urge you to join me and cast a vote for Karen Hardy for Senate and Susan Swanson for the House this November. These individuals have committed to work for our family’s and neighbors’ best interest. They support education, rural economic development and multiple other issues that have been cast aside by our incumbents.

Bob Eugene
