Election 2022: Time for changes in Congress, Legislature

With a few of the people running for office this year, I would like to point out some additional information about politicians running and rerunning for office.

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., is a worn-out politician who has been in office for 30 years. She is 73 years old and no one over the age of 72 should be in office. We are seeing with Joe Biden, the effects of aging. Murray cares little for her constituents as a whole. She needs to hang up her tennis shoes.

Tiffany Smiley is running against Murray. She has fresh ideas that should make her a better senator. She has worked with both parties successfully. She strongly supports her blind husband who was in Iraq. She supports the military and the police. Her attitude and willingness to work on our state’s issues will be a fresh start as a Republican.

U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Wash., is another worn-out politician. He does not pay attention to most of his constituents, especially on key questions. He lets people know when he wants to boast about issues that pertain other than constituents. We have had enough of what he is not doing for our state.

State Sen. June Robinson, D-Everett, has exceeded her time and effectiveness in not supporting key issues. A number of us have contacted her regarding drunken driving and crime in our legislative district, but she once again is not adhering to requests on issues. Republican Anita Azariah would be a better choice and offers “fresh” ideas to represent the district.
