Swecker knows how to address complex issuesERIC JOHNSON
Over the past 35 years I have known Dan Swecker as an employer, neighbor and friend. Dan is a hard-working man of honesty and integrity who has built his life on a foundation of faith and family. Dan has great leadership skills and has used them in serving his country, state and community. He listens to and understands the concerns and opinions of others and is always thoughtful in his decisions. He has a long history of working collaboratively with people of all views and finding innovative solutions to difficult problems. And he’s done this while maintaining his core values and principles. As the owner of a small business, Dan understands how the private sector drives our economy, the need for more family-wage jobs, and the role of government to enable and assist those in our communities. This election year it is especially important to retain our proven leaders who can address the complex issues faced by our state. Dan knows how government works, is respected by his peers and has a history as an effective leader in Olympia who gets things done.
