Early Endorsements

I’m pleased that the Seattle King County Association of Realtors® has granted me an early endorsement for my 2014 campaign. They say that they give early endorsements to incumbents who have “consistently demonstrated exemplary support on REALTOR® legislative issues.” (And of course, only to those who can figure out how to get the little ® next to their name – branding is everything :-) ) Often what’s good for housing values is good for the rest of us. People pay more for houses where there are good schools, where they can get to work conveniently either in their car or on transit, where there are attractive parks, etc. 

From an entirely different sector of the economy, the Washington Education Association has as well. We’re off to a good start!

Campaign 2014

Ross Hunter, April 8, 2014

It starts again. I have been profoundly honored to serve the 48th District since 2002. In 2010 I was fortunate to be elected by my peers to be the chair of the Appropriations committee, responsible for writing the state budget. In that job I’ve been able to continue my work improving school funding. This year I’ve been appointed to the Article IX subcommittee, responsible for communicating with the Supreme Court on our school funding responsibilities as part of the McCleary case.

You can see my long history of observations on legislative issues on my blog site www.rosshunter.info. The list to the right shows the last 5 or 10 posts, but the full site is much richer. I reserve this site for more political posts and for the campaign.

I value your support and urge you to “like” my face page – again available on the right.

Of course, most political campaigns run on money and volunteers. Both are incredibly valuable and I’d love your support. The big red buttons at the upper right are how you support the campaign with money or volunteer time. Competitive races on the Eastside cost over $200,000, so I need to start building up the bank account now to be prepared for the fall. I appreciate your support. The maximum contribution is $1,900 per person, or $3,800 per couple, but of course I value all contributions, and the number of donors is sometimes just as important as the amount.
