Statement: Do you believe in citizen legislature? If so, my name is Lewis Gerhardt, your neighbor, and I’d like to represent you in Olympia. Becoming involved in local issues and activism allowed me to educate myself in governmental affairs while working full time to support my family. I’ve observed the price we pay for electing career politicians and special interest candidates. Citizen Governance begins with citizens willing to stand and accept the responsibility of Public Service. Many of our neighbors paved the way through diligent work in neighborhood associations, proving, We the Citizens, working together, can build a better community.

"There is no such thing as poor leadership, only the lack of it."

Leadership requires confident decision making, which I excel at. Our neighbors asked that I step up to represent the people of the 49th District. If you will allow, I’ll diligently work for you, the betterment of the 49th District, Clark County, and all of Southwest Washington.

Now is the moment to return government to the people. We cannot limit civic duty to the selective few. Who do you want defending you and your children? Who represents what’s best for our community? Please answer with your vote.
