WHEN DO YOU FIRE YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE

 

There are only 147 legislators that make the laws all 7 million people in this state will live by.

We must choose carefully!

We have to look past their sparkling speeches and advertisements of what nice and caring people they are and take a closer look at their voting record to see what they are doing for us…..or to us………

If over 70 percent of the people in your district told their representative not to do something, and they did it anyway, would you fire them?

Over 70 percent of the voters in this district told State Representative Pat Sullivan and Mark Hargrove not to raise any new taxes without a 2/3 majority vote by passing initiative 960.

Mark Hargrove complied with the citizens demands.

Pat Sullivan did not.

 Representative Sullivan hoped for the Supreme Court would Rule this initiative as unconstitutional. Before a ruling was ever made Pat Sullivan (as house majority leader) led the charge to suspend that initiative in the middle of the night, under sneaky circumstances, and proceeded to raise our taxes 6.7 billion dollars over a ten year period. Exactly what the voters here told him not to do!

This was not the only time Representative Sullivan slapped the voters in the face and suspended a people’s initiative. Last year (2015) the voters passed the “Smaller Class Size Now” initiative. This required legislators to hire additional teachers now and make class sizes smaller starting in 2016. Pat Sullivan led the charge to suspend that initiative for 4 years.

Sullivan claimed we didn’t have the money.

The facts show otherwise. 16 years ago Washington State was operating on a budget that was approximately 45 billion dollars. Today our budget spends nearly 84 billion dollars.

The claim that we do not have the money is simply false. The truth is that it is being spent else ware. Our spending has nearly doubled in 16 years yet our schools are not properly funded, and our roads are in terrible shape.

It’s clear from the repeated slaps in the face from Sullivan, and others in office, they do not represent the voters in their district. They represent instead their lobby and special interest campaign financiers.

It’s time to fire Pat Sullivan.

It’s time to elect someone new, someone who listens to our community and votes accordingly.

It’s time to elect BARRY KNOWLES for STATE REPRESENTATIVE
