Letters | Brad Toft should run again

  • Sep 23, 2013 at 9:39AM

In 2012, Brad Toft ran for Washington State Senate. His campaign for a high-level office made him an easy target for political attacks.

And while the Salish’s typical employment and revenue numbers will remain unchanged, the State Legislature is poised to give it a tax break under the guise of economic development. Or, is it simply welfare for the rich?
