Roger Flygare, a candidate for  30th Legislative District House Position 1, is first of all a husband, parent and small business owner. A state-certified court reporter, he employs other court reporters and legal services employees.

When his country called, he answered. He’s a decorated veteran who served two tours in Vietnam. As a court reporter,  he was elected as the president of both of his statewide professional organizations. He has successfully worked with members of the state Legislature on a number of issues. He has clearly shown his ability to work across party lines to make a difference.

Now he is asking for voter support to work within the legislative process. He wants to expand educational opportunities for all of us. He believes that only a healthy community can raise healthy children. He believes that equal opportunity enhances everyone. He supports expanded public transportation, including light rail, to improve everyone’s opportunities.

Flygare will be a strong advocate for fundamental fair change in state funding of all parts of public education. He feels that full funding is the only way Washington will be a full participant in the 21st century’s new technology.
