44th LD, Senate: Lovick works for public’s safety

Those of us who have lived in Snohomish County for decades remember Sen. John Lovick, D-Mill Creek, from his time on the State Patrol and keeping us safe as our sheriff.

He has spent his entire career in public service. As a lawmaker Lovick has always prioritized good roads, good schools and good jobs. I have heard him say countless times that his focus is to make sure that everyone is not only safe, but that they feel safe.

That is why he has the support of firefighters, the State Patrol Troopers Association and the Fraternal Order of Police.

His work to increase training slots at our law enforcement academies, and the recent proposal to create regional training campuses to train police, have earned him the distinction of being the Fraternal Order of Police legislator of the year.

We can trust Sen. Lovick to work on legislation and investments that protect public safety.

The organizations that represent law enforcement in our state know this.

That is why I feel recent attacks on his record are disgusting and wrong! Negative mailers are intentionally misleading voters about his record in a purely partisan attack!

Please join me in voting for Sen. Lovick in the 44th Legislative District, because he is the best person to protect public safety in our communities.
