New personnel needed in Olympia

Well, here it is, primary season. Once again we get to exercise our most precious right as citizens. Yes, it’s only a primary, but that is where your candidate comes from. It is time to look at how this state is being run. Are you happy with it? If you are, then by all means, send the current power structure back to Olympia to accomplish more of the same. After all, it’s only money. Ours!

The ruling party has gotten us to where we are today. They are not going to change, ever! If we were to send all of them home and elect brand new legislators, we could not possibly be worse off than we are right now. I am tired of these folks “fighting for us.” It seems to me they have lost.

Just a thought.
