Experience matters

Dave Wilson will create a civil Congress where bipartisanship exists for the good of all. We need Dave Wilson.

Paying his way through college, earning a master’s from Gonzaga in Education with an Administration and Curriculum focus, serving as district manager for Radio Shack, Dave, seeing a need for technology in the workplace, created Interface College offering technology-related courses. Dave worked to have Interface College accredited with an Associate Degree program and successfully directed the school for 29 years. Interface (a building that he purchased) employed 20 permanent staff with 275 students a year.

To do all this, one has to know how to deal with people. Dave dealt with students, employees, business leaders, state regulations, taxes, building and equipment maintenance. Chairing the National Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training, he still found time to coach Spokane youth baseball and basketball many years.

Valuing civility in governing, Dave was a founding member of the nonprofit People for Effective Government (PEG), a Spokane based coalition of citizens who support bipartisan approaches to governing which are fiscally responsible, ensure an adequate social safety net, and a civil society.

Vote proven experience—Vote Dave Wilson for the 5th Congressional District!
