Please vote for Joel Hussey for state legislature in the 45th District. Unlike his opponent, Joel is not a professional politician. He has spent years serving the community; he has been a school board president, is active in the boy scouts and as president of Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association, he spearheaded a reorganization of the association and its finances.

His leadership ultimately led to development of new soccer fields on 60 Acres South and return of the Mueller Farm to organic farming.

With his background in education and work with youth groups, Joel is uniquely equipped to join the effort to improve our education system to meet court ordered standards. Hussey will make funding and improving education a top priority.

As a successful businessman, Hussey will help in the effort to forge a sustainable budget and end the costly over-runs and special sessions. Over regulation, cumbersome taxation and out-of-control spending are destroying businesses in our state.

Hussey’s business skills will be useful when he works with both parties to pass sustainable budgets, reduce regulation and create an environment that spurs business growth.

If you’re tired of budget over-runs, special sessions and gimmicks, out-of-control spending, over-regulation and endless partisan bickering, shouldn’t you vote to field a new team in Olympia? Joel Hussey has exactly the skills, training and experience we need now.

Jeanie D. McCombs, Kirkland
