Hit reset button, vote for McCravey | Letter
October 25, 2012 · Updated 3:24 PM
Our children deserve the very best we can give them and instead Olympia is failing them.
The Legislature has failed to fund education, failed to grow businesses and create jobs, failed to balance a budget, and failed to attend to the governance of the state while running after special interest dollars.
In our district, Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, chair of the Education Committee, has been singled out because she stymied key education reforms. Unfortunately, she has been part of Olympia for 20 years and an elected official for 35 years. She has lost touch with the people she was elected to serve. Instead, I believe she is allowing special interests to dictate education policy in Washington.
Her state senate race opponent, Dawn McCravey, has worked hard to improve curriculum, tie board and district goals to student achievement and to protect student programs. McCravey was also committed to protecting our valuable employees from devastating unconstitutional budget slashing in Olympia during her time on the Northshore School Board.
The only way to change directions in Olympia is to change the people we send there. This election cycle let’s vote for a new direction and elect Dawn McCravey for state Senate. Together, we can hit the reset button on Olympia and career politicians!
