Don’t allow Gov. Inslee a third term


Gov. Jay “Tax and Spend” Inslee is running for a third term; please stop him! His run for the presidency cost Washington taxpayers up to $2 million for his State Patrol security, which he never repaid to the taxpayers.

He hired Suzie Levine as state unemployment cmmissioner, at $177,133 a year, with her only qualification as a fundraiser for Barack Obama and Inslee. Levine has stated the Employment Security Department lost at least $550 million to hackers; how much we may never know, even though millions were spent on anti-fraud software). At one point over 81,000 people had not received a penny due them. One cannot call in to unemployment. I got a response to my inquiry six weeks after submitting, with really no explanation. What did Inslee do about Levine? Nothing!

He has not been consistent on his virus policies, causing businesses to open and close repeatedly. He released thousands of prisoners from prison early. He refuses to have a face-to-face debate with his opponent. Where does he stand on the riots in our cities? Inslee wants to raise taxes again, when people and businesses are hurting. Enough is enough! It is time for a new direction. Enough of his taxes. Throw Inslee out!
