Postma Announces Candidacy
Campaign Kickoff with Opening of New Headquarters

Steilacoom Retired Rocket Engineer, Businessman, Political Activist, Aviator and Republican candidate for Congress in Washington’s Ninth Congressional District,
Jim Postma announces his candidacy with the Grand Opening of the new campaign headquarters in Parkland, WA, February 25, 2010 at 7:00PM.

The location is 13829 Pacific Ave S in Parkland in the Parkland Center shopping area.

“We chose this site for its size and availability. Not just an office, but an activity area for large gatherings and events”, Jim commented. “I wanted to have the space necessary to
do these things and an office would not have been the best choice. We have movies planned, documentaries and fund raising events. Can’t do all that in an office”.

“It has taken weeks to get ready and the final touches are almost completed”, Jim said.
“I’m proud of my team. They have worked hard and their efforts are a testimony to the
American spirit that still prevails in our nation”.

Jim Postma is the candidate for these times. His resolve is to uphold Conservative values with answers to the hard issues of our times. And to make a stand for our Constitution, with honor and perseverance.

“I vow to strive for this nation, its Constitution and especially its people. For it is the people of our great nation that need great leaders. An even greater need now than ever before”, declares Jim. “As I have said before, ‘One man speaking the truth is more powerful and than guns or money. And I intend to prove it”.
