ELECTION: Roger Flygare acts in bipartisan way

We need a 30th District legislator with proven experience in working effectively in Olympia with members of both parties.

For many years, Roger Flygare has worked long hours in Olympia with many different legislators to get numerous bills passed to benefit us. This year, as co-chair of the Federal Way Commission Against Trafficking, Flygare and others from FWCAT worked successfully to get 12 anti-human trafficking bills passed.

Now he is asking voters to let him serve from within the Legislature where he can use his experience as a small business owner and skill in building bipartisan coalitions to get things done.

I urge those voters who have not had the opportunity to talk to Flygare, and especially if all they have read are recent unfounded allegations about his service record, to visit his website, www.vote4rogerflygare.com. Learn about him, his priorities and accomplishments, his endorsements, and what others say about him and his productive interactions. Read the letter from his wartime sergeant commending his service 40 years ago.

Flygare’s goals are clear: full funding of education so that children can be prepared to enter the 21st-century workforce, dramatically improving public transportation so we can get to work, stimulating the economy by using fairer taxation to let small businesses grow and protecting the constitutional rights of all.

With his bipartisan experience working in Olympia, Flygare can immediately start acting effectively on our concerns.
