I have known state Rep. Tom Campbell for many years as he has worked diligently on critical issues for the 2nd Legislative District which have been a concern for me.

Campbell’s record includes important health care legislation, veteran’s benefits, critical transportation infrastructure, environmental health concerns and strict controls on methamphetamine precursors – which he had to fight very hard to get passed.

His bills are well researched, meaningful and beneficial to the district – not just “show bills.” Campbell has the experience, knowledge and background, and he understands how to get things done in Olympia. He isn’t afraid of, nor does he bow down to parties or personalities and I have found that he always puts the needs of people first.

I know many politicians, but few have I known to work as hard as Campbell. If you live in the 2nd district, I urge you to enthusiastically cast your vote for Campbell. His record shows he has earned our support.
