After the latest special session
ended, I was approached by numerous people to run for the State Legislature
again. They would tell me that their property rights were being violated, that
their businesses were continuing to take financial hits or that they had lost
their job. I heard about excessive regulations that were choking growth and how
criminals were taking advantage of the system or how our children’s education
is suffering. They all wanted someone to fight for them.
I am running for the people and I
am focused on upholding the citizen’s will, their votes and to give them a clear
strong voice in the House. I will stand up for the jobless, the business owner,
the abused, the neglected and the unborn. I will fight for our property rights,
for our children to get a solid education, accountability in the tax system and
for our civil liberties. Last but not least, with me you can be assured no
compromises, and no deals on the right to keep and bear arms. I am going to
stand firm on our Constitution and I’m not going to waiver.
I agree with the Washington State
Constitution, “All political power is inherent in the people, and governments
derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established
to protect and maintain individual rights." It is time that the people in
our State get their voice back and their votes to count and there is no time
like now to get started.
I am working with leaders all
across this state to get Washington back on track. Your ideas are welcome and I
would appreciate your input. After all, we are all in this together and no one
has the market cornered on the best ideas.
Your support is critically important, as is your vote and the votes of your friends and family. If we are going to really turn this state around it will take Courage, Character and Commitment. We will win by working together and leaving no stone unturned.
We can do it and I am counting on you.
