Statement: Representative Hans Zeiger is working to strengthen our communities, not our bureaucracies. As the son, grandson and great-grandson of Puyallup teachers—and as a new dad—Hans knows the value of education, work and public service.
Hans has a proven record of working with people in both parties to reform government. He championed funding for the completion of Highway 167 while pushing for reforms to the DOT. He worked to engage the private sector in solving some of our biggest public problems. He passed legislation to strengthen partnerships between schools and communities. He sponsored bills to help veterans, firefighters, college students, and low-income families.
Hans will go to work in the State Senate to fully fund our schools, to demand results in state programs on homelessness, and to improve public safety in our neighborhoods. Hans knows that the best solutions to today’s problems happen when neighbors work together.
Today Washington needs a renewed commitment to service—in our communities, our houses of worship, our workplaces, and most of all our families. Hans knows that his most important calling is as a husband to Erin, dad to baby Clara, and stepdad to Cullen and Kannen.
