Harmsworth can address big issues

I want to recommend my friend and neighbor Mark Harmsworth for our next state representative. Last week I spoke with him about his vision and purpose for running. I was moved by the clarity of his positions and his resolute determination. Mark has faithfully and effectively served on the Mill Creek City Council. He has significantly impacted the way in which city services are delivered, as well as how Mill Creek is represented regionally. Mark acts upon his belief that taxpayer dollars are not an inexhaustible revenue stream flowing through our neighborhoods. His achievements speak louder than words.

His work with Everett Community College and the Boys &Girls Clubs are active indicators of his commitment to our children and our communities. As a business leader for 25 years, Mark’s success translates directly to Olympia and speaks in a language understood on both sides of the aisle. I strongly believe Mark is the person to address big issues such as job creation, delivery of government services and strong schools. Please join me in supporting Mark Harmsworth for state representative by casting your vote.
