As a businessman, I know what it takes to create jobs.
State government cannot wave a magic wand and create real, private sector jobs. But it can create the kind of environment that allows businesses to grow and prosper. Washington State's tax and regulatory system discourages hiring.
I will work to change our government policies so that businesses can begin hiring again.
I intend to be a proud advocate personally for South King County, to attract businesses to locate here and for current business to stay and expand.
