The hard work and determination Anthony Kalchik has displayed in the past bodes well for his bid to represent the 30th District in the race for state representative Position 2. Following in Skip Priest’s footsteps, he will continue the work of making education the paramount duty of the state.

Kalchik ran and lost the election for Position 1 in 2006. But he is determined to be a part of the political process.

Kalchikā€™s personal story mirrors many of us who are children and grandchildren of immigrants. He recognized the freedom in America that he lacked in Ukraine and brought his family to Federal Way, built his small business and created jobs. A tragedy motivated him to make a difference securing our children from harm.

I urge 30th District voters to support him.
