Statement: This election presents the people of Seattle with an opportunity to make a change in Olympia for the good of all of Washington. Challenges abound in transportation, state finances, and education. Government works best when allowed to stick to core duties, doing them well leaving personal affairs to the people. Let's slow it down and use some discreation. The people are competent and can manage themselves. I'll work to leave government intervention to community needs that can only be addressed by pooling our resources. This will reduce the need for new tax burdens on businesses and individuals. You're invited.
