State government can do better when it comes to our local economy. Seattle politicians make decisions that shutter local businesses and then say our communities should be dependent on Seattle tourists. We can't rebuild our economy on any one industry. We need family wage jobs. That means a diversified economy. And local legislators who will stand up to Seattle’s agenda.
For too many years, Olympia has failed our community, refusing to fund our local schools adequately. Rep. Jim Walsh helped pass an historic reform that added more funding for our local schools and made our property taxes fairer. Good schools are vital to our future--and our economic recovery.
Representative Jim Walsh shares our community’s values. He's committed to Coastal Washington's success. He cares about the future of our children and our local economy. He shares our area's commitment to bi-partisanship and common sense. Most of all: He’s a voice for the Coast, not Seattle
