General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
My name is Marty McClendon

I was born in a Navy Hospital in San Diego, but I grew up here in Washington. We moved to Quincy in 1972, and later lived in East Wenatchee, Coulee Dam and other places. My dad worked construction jobs and cowboy jobs.

I grew up in a time and place where you knew your neighbors, where you never locked your doors, and when you had to be home by dark.

I grew up in a time and place where a practical faith taught you to be honest, to be patriotic, to respect your elders, and to do your best.

Dad worked hard, and he taught me to work hard. This came in handy during summers on grandpa’s farm, where there was no end to hard work. Dad and grandpa taught me by example that keeping your word, being true to your family, and loving your neighbor are the true measures of a man.

Dad was a generous and compassionate man who would give the shirt off his back to someone in need. He was also a practical man, and taught me that a man must know the dignity of hard work and self-reliance.

This foundation served me well when I enrolled at the University of Washington to pursue a career in medicine. After college, I enjoyed success as Anesthesia Technician for 13 years.

Marriage and children pushed me to find a career with more control over my time, and I chose real estate. I’ve now been a Realtor for 15 years, and have received many awards for customer satisfaction.

As you can tell, faith and family are both vital to me. Faith sustained our family when our son Logan was stricken with leukemia, and later when my wife Lyn was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a pastor, I love to help people connect authentically with their God and get the resources that only He can provide. My faith teaches me that everyone is made in God’s image, and deserves to be loved. My faith unites me with people who are different from me – different in age, race, gender, sexual orientation, in political philosophy and in a thousand other ways. We are stronger because of our diversity.
