A refreshing, capable choice in 21st district

I want a representative in the 21st District who will bring positive action and new ideas to our most pressing problems. D.J. Wilson will give us the refreshing and capable change that we need to get workable solutions enacted in Olympia.

D.J. is committed to protecting our shores and our water from polluters. He believes we must do all that is necessary to ensure the continued availability of clean drinking water, and of following, not weakening, the Shorelines Management Act.

He has the sense to know that we need both long-term and short-term solutions to our difficult and complex transportation problem that moves people, not just cars. Most of all, he knows we need to experience improvements and soon.

As an educator, D.J. has seen first-hand the deficiencies and successes of our public education system. He knows that reducing class size improves student learning and that we must maintain quality teachers in all levels of the education system.

He has said that “no one will work harder for you” and he has already set out to prove it. D.J. has talked to voters in over 91 of the District’s precincts taking the time to listen and discuss the issues with citizens. I think D.J. deserves our vote and support in the primary and general election.
