It’s Time We Take the State House Back in The 26th LD!
Our parents and grandparents built this country together. The roads and bridges that generations of hard working Americans have built, the schools and universities we created, the rights we have tirelessly fought to gain and expand were all done with government acting as an instrument of the people.
That type of government has been systematically and strategically dismantled. And those doing the dismantling are trying to convince you that it cannot be brought back. Well they’re wrong. The power of participation can overcome the power of money. We can bring back an America that works for all of us to build strong communities and a better world for our children.
But we need, once again, to stand up to the age old sin of greed. Of the “every man for himself” attitude pitting us against each other. We need to stand together to build ladders of opportunity that reward hard work and perseverance. We need to stand together and support solutions to the imminent threat of climate change. We need to stand together and protect those without a voice.
To do that we need a government that is empowered. One that works to build an economy built from the middle class out – not trickled down. We need a government that is fully and fairly funded to do what we cannot do alone.
It’s time for us to stand up for real Democracy and responsibility from all our citizens. In a time of lost pensions, unaffordable health care, stagnant wages and part time work we need corporations to look to the long term stability and strength of the middle class and not next quarter’s profits. In a time when climate disaster threatens our way of life, we need corporations to find paths to profit that will also protect our natural resources. We can make these goals a reality. We can make government work for all of us again.
In the coming weeks and months we will be posting a series of brief articles (with links to additional info) that will illustrate how our Republican representatives in Olympia are working against our community’s best interests.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!
‘Shine a Light on the Right’ will focus on the records and activities of Republican state house reps to help voters in the 26th LD make informed choices and impart reliable information with fellow voters who share our progressive values. Our goal is to keep you informed, incensed, and inspired to action!
