Statement: “It’s the economy….” We know in a weak economy, everybody suffers: small business owners, wage earners, home owners, social program managers, and maybe most of all…retirees. Olympia suffers; vital programs and services lack full funding. This shouldn’t be!
Wherever possible, Olympia ought to be pro-active; creating an environment favorable to small business startups and growth, conducive to job creation, and attractive for investment. In a strong economy, tax revenues grow allowing full funding of education, investment in infrastructure, and support for social issues plaguing our beautiful Olympic Peninsula. That’s the environment I’d like to help Olympia build.
