Instead of a split endorsement (editorial, 7-16), 2nd District state Sen. Randi Becker deserves The News Tribune’s full support. She proved her mettle when she defeated Marilyn Rasmussen, a fixture in Olympia for two decades, by a wide margin in her first election four years ago.
Becker has been an attentive and effective servant of her constituents for the past four years. She has proven her ability to work across party lines and get things done. Becker is not a politician by trade; she is a genuine person who truly cares about the future of our state and beloved country. She deserves a second term.
