ELECTION: 26th District voters got it right

The 26th Legislative District voters got it right when the majority supported Derek Kilmer, Larry Seaquest and Jan Angel in the primary. We in the 26th are lucky to have these highly competent legislators working for us in Olympia.

All three supported their constituents’ wishes by voting against the repeal of I-960, the state operating budget and the recent rash of tax increases. Both Larry and Derek have been instrumental in keeping the Tacoma Narrows Bridge tolls down and successfully pushing for the completion of the Burley/Olalla interchange. Jan’s Kitsap County executive experience is proving beneficial for legislation that affects county governments.

These highly regarded, fiscally conservative legislators need our continued support in the general election. It is not about party or ideology. It is about putting highly effective people in these positions and the 26th has them. I want to thank those voters who supported them.
