ELECTION: Schlump has deep community roots

I will be voting for Shelly Schlumpf over Dawn Morrell for state representative in the 25th District based on their records.

Schlumpf’s understanding of our community comes from her deep involvement in it. Whether it’s the PTA, Daffodil Festival or our Farmers’ Market, she has strong roots in local causes. Her commitment to our community comes from her concern for its residents. She would take this passion to Olympia and represent us well in the Legislature.

Morrell may be a good person, but she has a bad voting record. For eight years, she voted for fiscally irresponsible budgets and to raise taxes – including pushing aside voter-approved initiatives. Morrell puts her political party before the needs of our community.
