Lovick record is strong

I’m writing this letter in support of John Lovick’s re-election bid to the state House of Representatives for the 44th District. I’m a fire commissioner for Snohomish County Fire District 7 and a citizen of the 44th district.

When John was a city council member for the City of Mill Creek, which contracts for fire services from Fire District 7, he was one of the city council’s representatives assigned to our joint fire board. His primary concern was that the citizens he represented received a fair price for the best fire and paramedic services. After working with John, I know that he understands the budget process and how to save but also how to spend our money wisely.

John Lovick is a Washington State Patrol sergeant who drives our congested highways on a daily basis. He sees the affect of congested highways and DUI accidents. His traffic experiences have helped him to come up with creative ways to reduce our highway problems.

John Lovick sponsored a privacy law, which will stop the practice of our credit card numbers being printed on retail sales slips. This bill not only protects our privacy, but also will cut down on credit card crimes.

John Lovick’s wife is a teacher in a private school, but his children attended public schools. John has knowledge about the workings of both the private and public school systems, which is helpful to him when he considers any school legislation.

I voted for John Lovick the first time he ran for state representative, and because of what I’ve seen him do for this community and the 44th District, I will vote for him in his re-election bid.
