griffin 120x150 Legislative District 1, Position 2

Elected Experience:
I am coming to this election without formal political experience or public office, which gives me new and different perspectives unlike “career politicians”.

Other Professional Experience:
I have recently joined the many voters seeking new employment after a 10 year career as Operations Manager of a Box Manufacturer. Due to the economy I am on the job search like many other voters. In the last 30 years I have been a union member, manger and employee. Having worked the front line to executive suite.

Education:
No information submitted

Community Service:
I am a soccer Dad, coach of my daughter’s team for 3 years. Former president of LWYSA Redmond Club.

Statement:
As a resident of the 1st district for over 40 years, it matters to me what direction the government is heading. I want to show that money, special interests and political circles are not requirements to serve the voters of 1st District and Washington. Fiscally responsible government, educating our children, the forgotten seniors, burdening entrepreneurs and small business, increasing taxes in a bad economy. These are just a few issues that government and politicians have let all voters down on.

Let’s change! With your help, I hope to be your voice in Olympia as your Representative of the 1st district.

Elected Experience:
I am proud to say I have no elected experience! I do not believe in career politicians. I believe in citizen representatives, such as myself, serving the people for a time, and returning home before they get “important.” I wanted someone who remembers… so I ran.

Other Professional Experience:
My career includes the computer industry, Staffing Coordinator at a nursing home, and Office Manager of the Industrial Repair subsidiary of the Asko Group. I currently own and manage a housecleaning business.

No information submitted

Community Service:
I am active in my Church, the Bothell Chamber of Commerce and served as Team Mom on my daughter’s soccer team.

Statement:
I’m tired of politics as usual, aren’t you? I’m not a political insider, just someone who’s ready to stand up for you in Olympia.

With so many people out of work, state government should be focused on getting people back to work, not hiking our taxes. As a small business owner, I know how difficult the state makes it for businesses to prosper and hire new employees. State government doesn’t have a revenue problem; it has a spending problem. It’s time to craft a state budget that’s affordable now and into the future. I respectfully ask for your vote.

  1. Luis Moscoso is the nominated Democratic candidate. That means that he has been drilled by Democrat PCOs and gotten the endorsement from the Party.
