I am supporting Tim Sheldon for reelection to the state Senate. I believe the 35th District benefits from his years of experience in the Legislature. Now is not the time to throw a political novice into the legislative arena. The very fact that statewide and locally the liberal Democrats are trying desperately to unseat, him assures him of my vote.
I have always been appreciative of his ability to be an independent thinker and find common sense solutions. I think many of the voting citizens are sick to death of extreme partisan politics on both sides of the aisle and the resulting inaction of elected officials at the both the state and federal levels. Sheldon has always worked to find solutions and he is not afraid to go up against the liberal King, Snohomish and Pierce County legislators to work for solutions that benefit not only his district but also other rural areas of the state.
A vote for Tim Sheldon is a vote for a reasonable problem solving approach to the issues that face our state.
