Statement: Growing up and starting his own family in Kennewick, Leo has a track record of community service and leadership; which is greatly needed in the 8th Legislative District. He is running for State Senator because he believes that it is time for forward looking leadership; leadership that will speak for the people, leadership that will always listen and put the people first.
By putting the residents of the 8th LD first, Leo will fight for the issues that will unite us, not divide us. Leo will fight for healthcare for all, he will fight for investments in our communities to keep them strong, and he will fight for an economy that is built from the middle class out. He will fight to protect workers’ rights and ensure that large corporations play by the same rules as everybody else. Leo will fight for the many families who are struggling, he will fight for an education system where higher education is affordable and where our teachers receive fair pay. Leo will fight for commonsense policies that benefit everyone because politics isn’t about left or right, it’s about speaking to the concerns of people’s lives. Vote for commonsense, vote for Leo.
