On Veterans Day, it is important to reach out and honor our veterans. According to a recent United States Census estimate, U.S. military veterans make up nearly 7 percent of our country’s population. The U.S. Department of Defense reports state that since Sept. 11, 2001, more than 2.6 million veterans have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these combat veterans, it is estimated over 1 million returned home with at least one service-related disability or injury.

Dave Reichert is the clear choice to represent those in the Eighth District. During his tenure, Congressman Reichert has demonstrated that he has a strong understanding of the issues that matter to the constituents of the district. This is apparent by his numerous endorsements, which include the National Education Association, Washington Small Business Council, the Seattle Times, and major public safety organizations.
Please vote no on I-594. This bill is not about closing loopholes in purchases of firearms, but is about gun control, period. For instance, if I give my guns to my son for safekeeping while I am on vacation, we have broken the law. If I want to teach my wife safe gun handling at any place other than a shooting range, we are criminals. If I teach a youth group about gun safety and let them handle a gun, we are all criminals. That is not about closing loopholes.

It’s simple. Every child in the Snoqualmie Valley is worthy of the opportunity to learn in an uncrowded classroom. By voting yes on Initiative 1351, you will be providing our Valley’s children with the kind of education they deserve. Here’s why: Washington ranks 47th out of 50 states in class size. I-1351 moves us to the middle.
