Statement: Working for solutions: It’s my passion, my duty. We can invest in roads, schools and industries like aerospace to create jobs. We can expand educational opportunities and we can ensure access to quality health care. We can build a better Washington, and we are.
I sponsored the 2012 Jobs Now package that will create 20,000 construction-related jobs and 9,000 long-term jobs throughout Washington, improve roads and modernize facilities at colleges. We increased WSU degree opportunities in Snohomish County. These are smart investments that don’t require new taxes and are on our to-do list. Let’s keep moving forward.
