Statement: Some politicians go to Olympia, vote against everything and then blame everyone else for not getting things done. Not Steve Kirby. He's a different kind of politician.
If you’re new to the 29 th District, you’ll like his unique style. His sense of humor is legendary, but he can quickly become a serious problem for anyone or anything that could potentially harm his district. He puts the needs of the people first. Not those of the special interests. He’ll continue to fight for safe neighborhoods, good schools and a strong economy. Steve Kirby doesn’t make excuses. He makes a difference.
