ELECTION: Vote Doug Cloud for Congress

After research, I found Congressman Dicks requested $64 million in earmarks to campaign contributors in the past two years.

Norm Dick’s voting record is as dismal as his practice of nepotism. He has voted with Nancy Pelosi 99 percent of the time. The health care bill, bailouts and stimulus bill. All of which have failed and to the point of putting this country in debt which will put a

ELECTION: Don’t make another mistake

The recent news about Norm Dicks and his controversial involvement with lobbying firm PMA Group is nothing new from the beltway.

As an independent voter, I considered all the issues at hand when making my decisions in the primary. I don’t pledge allegiance to the donkey or the elephant. My fear is that we will trade one “politician” for another.

I’m voting for Doug Cloud and will be able to respect myself in the morning.
