I work for a nonprofit agency that saves the state money while providing home care services to those with disabilities and to seniors. This takes good training, compassion and hard work.

If Rob McKenna is elected governor, I am afraid I will lose my job, and even worse the ones we care for will be forced into costly, already overcrowded institutions.

His budget plan would slash home care for seniors and people with disabilities. Shame on The News Tribune for endorsing him.

Our most vulnerable and precious seniors have suffered enough from recent cuts. Jay Inslee is opposed to further cuts to these people. While in Congress he pushed for federal legislation to help seniors and people with disabilities. Inslee deserves our support.
