ELECTION: Jesse Young is an uncommon candidate

I’m disappointed The News Tribune didn’t endorse Jesse Young, our incumbent state representative for the 26th District (editorial, 10-16).

Young is an effective representative for us all. Experience gained from serving on the education and transportation committees will make him more effective in solving problems in these areas.

Young knows that jobs will revive the economy, and he has a vision for high-paying technology jobs. His background in technology will bring these jobs to the area. He works to free small business from overregulation so they can create more jobs. He knows that jobs, not new taxes, will increase

LEGISLATURE: Jesse Young should get appointment

It’s always good to see a candidate who not only understands the issues I care about and is fully prepared to lead on them, but has also “earned his wings” the old-fashioned way – through hard work, grit and determination.

Jesse Young grew up impoverished and sometimes homeless in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood. He worked hard and graduated from high school as valedictorian in 1995. He was named a Washington State Scholar by the state Legislature. He worked his way through college, earning a bachelor’s degree in management information systems in 1999.

Young is also an information technology consultant whose global

ELECTION: Jesse Young stands by his principles

I highly recommend Jesse Young for Congress, as he is a man of principle and is going to Washington to serve the people. He will make a contract with his constituents to come back every quarter and be accountable for what he has promised to do – balance the budget, downsize government, help create legislation that will help businesses grow and create jobs.

He also promises to help defeat Obamacare and help reform Medicare and Medicaid.


ELECTION: A vote for Driscoll is a vote for Kilmer

I was disappointed to see that The News Tribune endorsed Bill Driscoll for Congress in the 6th Congressional District.

I have attended three debates, and he failed to show up to two of them. The one that he did attend was disappointing. His ideas weren’t particularly original or inspiring, and he had a hard time even articulating some of those ideas.

We need someone in Washington, D.C., who can clearly speak to the unique needs of the 6th District. Jesse Young can communicate these needs with passion and knowledge.

This is our opportunity to really make a difference in our

ELECTION: Voters deserve better than Norm Dicks

Here we go again. Democratic Congressman Norm Dicks is associated with fraudulent political activities.

Dicks was the recipient of $101, 200 (from 2002 to 2008) from lobbyist Paul Magliocchetti, who was just indicted on 11 counts of fraud for making illegal campaign contributions. A federal grand jury on Thursday charged the lobbyist with evading federal limits on campaign donations by using straw donors to funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars to members of Congress, especially those with influence over military spending.

Is this the type of person we want representing us? The voters in the 6th Congressional District deserve much
