Statement: I’m running because it is time for my opponent to retire. As a County Councilman, I was a whistleblower on government intimidation and illegal secret meetings. My opponent voted to keep his government emails secret. I’ll vote for transparency and accountability.
Fix traffic. Stop highway tolls. Invest in teachers. I disagree with plans for a $6 toll on US2. The state must improve traffic flow in Snohomish County, not spend our money for Seattle mass transit we’ll never use. Property taxes are too high; I’ll work to lower them. And I’ll invest education dollars in great teachers and better classrooms.
