Statement: I will focus on long term solutions for the two fastest growing problems in Washington.
Balanced Budget: This year we’ve seen sharp increases to car tabs, gas taxes, sale taxes, property taxes, and even taxes on jobs. Reckless spending is driving up our taxes. I will fight for a responsible budget. Housing: I have an intimate understanding of the housing situation from the perspectives of investors, landlords, tenants, home owners, and those without. Careful zoning adjustments and a more efficient permitting process with upgrades to utility and transportation infrastructure will make vast improvements to our communities. Vote: Matt Seymour
