Haistings earned my vote

Kevin Haistings has earned my vote and those who are in the 45th District to be our next State Representative from the 45th District this November.

Washington State is functioning at an unsustainable rate, and I’m alarmed for both my children and my grandchildren if this reckless spending continues. Last week, the revenue projections were announced, which will be leave us with a $520 million budget deficit for this year alone and a $4.5 billion shortfall over the next two years. Haistings’ incumbent opponent has certainly done his share to add to that shortfall, and his solution is to raise taxes again. We can’t expect the deficits to be solved if we keep sending the same legislators back to Olympia. The only way to alter this course is to elect Haistings.

Haistings will provide new ideas with a strong voice for us in Olympia. Unlike his opponent, Haistings has solutions that specifically do not include raising taxes. Haistings will bring the work ethic and leadership that his opponent sorely lacks.
