I have known Jim Walsh for over 10 years and have found him to be a good family man, a smart businessperson and someone who is more passionate about seeing Grays Harbor thrive than many of us who were born here.
I believe he will take that passion to Olympia and speak loudly about jobs and the other needs of rural communities that often get swept aside by the big city legislators.
In this era of political mudslinging, it’s hard to know what candidates really stand for. I have found it helpful to try and focus on the qualities of the individual person, and I believe Jim Walsh has the intelligence and the drive we need in our State Representative.
