Statement: Jeremie Dufault, 40, believes that you deserve conservative and effective representation in Olympia. He believes that the Legislature should operate in a transparent manner. That the Seattle-based efforts to impose a state income tax or create a "carbon tax" should be blocked. And that individual, Constitutional protections like religious freedom and gun rights should be preserved.
Dufault is a real estate developer and a Major in the U.S. Army Reserve who has served in Kuwait and Afghanistan. He lives in Selah with his wife, Amy, and his two daughters, Ellie and Lucy. He serves on the Selah City Council.
