Supports Hansen for state House

I support Drew Hansen to represent me in Washington state’s House of Representatives, 23 Legislative District, for the following two reasons.

First, Drew has a proven history of supporting job creation and job training in my district on the Kitsap Peninsula. Drew has helped to secure funding, removed tax barriers and facilitated bipartisan support necessary to secure essential job training programs and jobs creation for veterans and other residents of Washington state.

Second, each election season the Hansville Community Center hosts a campaign forum. Our community organizes the event, provides a facility, and offers fresh pies as an incentive to draw interest and participation. We invite all candidates, asking only that each abide by a few simple rules designed to uphold the integrity and collegiality of the event.

James Olsen, Drew’s opponent, videotaped the event, edited a clip out of context and is using it for his campaign, which is directly in opposition to nature and purpose of our event.

I support Drew because actions speak louder than words. My vote for Drew is indicative of my belief that honesty, civility and integrity are the qualities that will ultimately lead to change.
