Links are only provided where we have information. The first link is a report of all issues and questions made available to the candidates.
General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
Washington's education standards are not serving us well. We need to reassess those standarads and find sensible ways to curb truancy and other juvenile problems. These challenges will require a different style of leadership, one that is responsive and effective.

Let's turn decades of talk about the Cross-Base Highway, and other transportation projects, into action.

Washington's veterans and military families deserve a strong advocate in Olympia who understands their needs.

It will take a thoughtful approach to generate real solutions to these problems, instead of simply throwing money at them. This year, elect a new kind of Representative.
