Letter: Dave Paul just makes sense

Editor,

We live in very perilous times.

We have been witnessing the possible collapse of constitutional government.

It’s possible in a short while all three branches of the federal government could be under executive control. It is more important than ever that we use the ballot box to preserve the freedoms we cherish.

What we all can do is vote and be informed voters.

Dave Paul, a candidate for the 10th legislative district, stands for common sense solutions to complex problems.

He supports legislation that takes lethal weapons out of the hands of people who are most likely to to commit mass murder. His opponent,

Dave Hayes, voted to keep bump stocks on assault rifles legal. Hayes is a sergeant sheriff and lives on Camano Island. His job is to protect people. Why would he vote to keep bump stocks legal?

Dave Paul also strongly supports the rights of sexual minorities as a human right.

Dave Hayes, on the other hand, voted against banning conversion therapy for young people under 18.

Conversion therapy has been shown to inflict emotional damage on vulnerable youth and to even increase the risk of suicide in GLBTQ youth.

These are just two issues that represent the values of the candidates.

There are many other issues that show the differences between them.

It is up to you to cast your vote for who you think would make the leader to best represent your values in Olympia.

You’re vote matters. Send Dave Paul to the House.
