Anthony (El Tigrero) Novack – Biographical Profile and Positions on the Issues

Previous Candidate for State Representative District 13 Position #2, Washington

PO Box 360Roslyn, WA 98941
(509) 630-4041
General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

I entered the election as a civic duty. Civic obligation led me to serve almost four years in Latin America with the Peace Corps and led my father and both grandfathers to full careers in the U.S. military. The principles of democracy are based on people making informed choices. Unfortunately, our district has recently failed to provide an elective choice for the positions of State Representative and State Senator.

I am not a politician. I am a scientist with a Master's of Science degree specializing in wildlife management.

The biggest issue to be addressed is the failure of the two parties to work collaboratively and provide effective government. Government should work proactively to develop long-term solutions and not act reactively to score

Civic (past and present organizations, charities involvement)

Peace Corps Volunteer, Honduras - 1995 to 1999 The Peace Corps provided a perfect opportunity for service to my country and to the world at large. My knowledge and education was in scarce supply outside of the U.S. and Europe. Believing I could make a difference by working in a third world nation rather than at home, I finished the long application process and headed off with high ideals, aspirations, and a backpack full of books.

I served in Honduras for three and a half years where most serve for only two. During that time I, implemented and administered a mammal inventory within a national park, developed and facilitated a hunter education course, trained my counterparts in wildlife management and participatory community analysis, organized and directed a community in the construction of an aqueduct system with water coming from within the confines of the national park. My final three months, I supervised and supported 15 Peace Corps volunteers in the natural resources sector.

Washington Unemployment Insurance

Washington should look at the Georgia model for providing up to six weeks of benefits to workers while they are employed in another job if, that new employment involves training into a new position.
