I’m pleased to have been endorsed by the Seattle Times this year. http://seattletimes.com/html/editorials/2019251370_editendorsementleg48xml.html I always wish I could write these articles as I might choose to focus on different items, but here’s what they said:
In House, Position 1, Democratic state Rep. Ross Hunter’s footwork helping push government reforms earns him another term in office — although that work is far from over. Within a sometimes uncooperative caucus, he helped secure key reforms to state pensions, public employee health care and K-12 education.
Hunter was first elected to the House in 2002 and has been a champion of public schools. As chair of the House Ways and Means Committee last session, Hunter played a key role producing a budget that held the line on spending and, especially important, did not cut the K-12 system or higher education.
Hunter’s work trying to ensure that businesses could create jobs is why he is one of only four House Democrats endorsed by the Association of Washington Business.
As part of the Democratic leadership, Hunter’s influence can help the coalition of moderate Democrats and Republicans fighting for slower state spending and budget priorities built around education.
