Statement: Spokane is my home. It hurts seeing neighborhoods in decline. Workers cannot find jobs and last years's real estate market was the worst recently recorded. In these hard times, Democrats make conditions worse by raising taxes and running up record deficits. But still programs like education, law enforcement and services for the needy are being deeply cut. In 10 months of sessions, Democrats debated everything but a responsible budget.
Leadership needs to understand we can't spend more than we have. Education, Public Safety, and more jobs are priorities. I would be honored to represent Spokane. I would appreciate your vote.
