After research, I found Congressman Dicks requested $64 million in earmarks to campaign contributors in the past two years.

Stimulus funds were supposed to help us turn this job market around but went to employ friends, family and contributors at places like the Puget Sound Partnership and Maritime Events Center.

Norm Dick’s voting record is as dismal as his practice of nepotism. He has voted with Nancy Pelosi 99 percent of the time. The health care bill, bailouts and stimulus bill. All of which have failed and to the point of putting this country in debt which will put a burden on our children

Doug Cloud is a man of principle. Doug has the background of running a small business along with his skill as a lawyer to understand how the government works. The uncertainty of taxation is creating a problem where small businesses are not investing and hiring, thus we are losing jobs.

Dicks’ top contributors are lobbyists. Doug is not for sale and does not accept lobbyist money. I encourage everyone to vote for Doug Cloud to turn this economy around and to bring back the trust in our congressional representative.
