Works for all people

We need someone in Congress who is going to get the job done, not be a part of the partisan bickering that is so rampant in Washington, D.C.

Dan McDonald is the right person for that job. It doesn’t matter if you are a Republican or a Democrat to Dan – he has proven during his time in the state Legislature that he can put politics aside and reach across the aisle to get things done. That must be why the Municipal League gave him an “outstanding” rating in 1998.

On the other hand, Jay Inslee has been part of the problem in Washington, D.C. In 1994, voters threw him out of office. Despite representing a new congressional district today, Inslee has returned to the same old habits of divide and conquer politics that got him thrown out of office the last time.

It’s time to see progress on the important issues facing our country. Join me in voting for Dan McDonald. His leadership is truly outstanding and he’ll never forget the fact that he works for all the people – Republicans, Democrats and independents.
