Will serve 39th District well

As a supporter of Hans Dunshee, 39th District Representative, I would like to thank all of you who supported Mr. Dunshee.

Mr. Dunshee has shown his loyalty to his constituents by his hard work and desire to serve us in the legislature. Mr. Dunshee’s presence was known to us during the campaign and afterward at various places in the district – waiving to motorists and giving the public an opportunity to stop and talk with him. I was impressed by his never-failing presence in these areas in cold and inclement weather early mornings and late evenings.

This was my first opportunity to personally work on a candidate’s campaign. I had always been impressed with Mr. Dunshee’s presence in the mornings on my way to work at the end of the Hewitt Avenue Trestle. By working on his campaign I have come to know the type of person he is and his desire to work for and represent us in his district.

I am confident that Mr. Dunshee knows the issues and will continue to be a strong voice for the residents of the 39th District in Olympia.
