Statement: Head tax, Soda tax, Mileage tax, Carbon tax, Sound Transit tax, Puget Sound overtaxed for State School funding, skyrocketing property taxes…had enough? Socialist Progressives provide little spending accountability. These taxes increase homelessness, hurt low-income Seniors, businesses and cost jobs. In interviewing people, many say they don’t align with any party. They are frustrated with partisan wrangling that ignores the real issues. As an Independent, I will reach across the aisle and bring leaders together to solve problems that affect us all.
I will work for you and for:
(1) A State Homelessness model patterned after Utah’s, (2) An effective, sustainable DOT model that reduces current and future traffic problems and eliminates cost overruns, (3) A smart growth management plan that addresses the problems of densification, (4) A State mandated and promised new airport site to relieve the disproportionate noise and air quality impacts from SeaTac that damage health, (5) Environmental and Economic Justice for close-in airport communities, (6) Election reforms-campaign contribution lids, increased funding for PDC enforcement and added campaign regulations, (7) Continued open public records for all elected officials/public agencies and (8) Enforcement of laws applied to gangs, drugs and crime.
