I will be casting my vote in the upcoming primary for Larry Seaquist for state House of Representatives. At a July 12 voters forum in Bremerton, he articulated a clear vision for the future of education in Washington.
Many problems were discussed at the forum, but issues around education were the dominant themes. Jobs? Veteran retraining? Competing in a global economy? All have direct connections to the crisis of education in our state.
Both at the forum and on his campaign website, Seaquist articulates a detailed plan to deal with Washington’s education crisis. Rep. Jesse Young expressed concern, but was short on details at the forum. Young’s campaign site offers even less — just a short sentence stating the problem without any proposed solutions.
Seaquist asked us all to take a long-range view of the issues facing the 26th District and the state. He is the candidate who will listen to our voices and who has the ability to translate our concerns and ideas into legislation and a vision for our future.
