Vote for balance in Olympia

We need more balance in Olympia.

Like most people, I am tired and frustrated with how out-of-balance our state budget has grown and with the vitriol being expressed in most political advertisements this election season. As a father who hopes that his children will be able to afford to live nearby one day, as a business owner who would love to stay in business in this state, and as a person who is active in my community, I’m encouraged by many of the challengers in this year’s state Senate races. These are candidates who bring more than hope and words to this year’s election. These are people who can bring true leadership, common sense, real world experience and proven problem-solving skills to Olympia. With our state facing a $4.5 billion dollar deficit this coming biennium, difficult decisions must be made in reestablishing and implementing the priorities of government.

Please join me in restoring checks and balances by helping to elect the following candidates to the state senate: Steve Litzow — 41st District; Andy Hill — 45th District; Joe Fain — 47th District; and Gregg Bennett — 48th District.
