The 41st District needs a Representative who will advocate for the solutions we need to thrive. Olympia needs bi-partisan leaders to ensure sound policy and effective results. Setting partisanship aside, we can work together to create sound fiscal policies, effective education investment, and efficient transportation. Sound budgeting and revenue policy are needed most in Washington State.
Our economy is currently one of the strongest in the nation, with state tax revenues exceeding everyone’s projections this year. In spite of this, Washington legislators spent our Rainy-Day Fund along a partisan party-line vote. As a businessperson, my prerogative is to spend your hard-earned money wisely, with responsible state budgeting. Tolls, property taxes, and car tabs keep increasing, hurting Eastside residents.
Fully funding education is a strong investment in our community, but tomorrow’s leaders are not benefiting from the current standards. As a Board Member of the Tillicum Middle School PTA, I have witnessed the struggles teachers and students face. I will advocate for honest assessments of student competency and graduation rates, making sure our children get the education they deserve.
Voters in the 41st District know that transportation is getting worse here, and your investments have not seen positive results. Vote Michael Appleby for the 41st District Representative, and I will advocate in Olympia for your quality of life.
