Supports Olsen for state representative

The coming election is an opportunity to vote for one the most qualified candidates we have had for the 23rd Legislative District — Jim Olsen.

As a Coast Guard officer ( 30 years )he was a leader in and successful at reforming and streamlining the budget, mission and staffing. At retirement, he moved to the private sector, becoming a successful business man in providing affordable rental housing in Kitsap and King counties. He understands the burdens of high taxes and excessive regulation. He is a dedicated and successful family man with five children and a long- term marriage.

One thing he is not is a professional politician. But importantly, through his experiences he has prepared himself to help solve the problems facing us in Olympia. He is enthusiastic, hard working, and dedicated.

Please vote Olsen in the 23rd for responsible leadership and fiscal responsibility. You will not be disappointed.
