Count on Bailey for fiscal sense

Washington State, like many other states, is experiencing budget issues unlike any other time and it is imperative that we elect the most experienced Washington state senator to represent us in the 10th District.

Someone who will focus on fiscal responsibilities and use common sense to make the necessary decisions to get Washington back on the right track is who we need to elect at this crucial time. That person is Barbara Bailey.

Barbara distinguished herself as a leader who uses common sense and integrity to solve the difficult issues facing our state.

Barbara has proven her ability to work with other legislators and has given special attention to jobs, the economy, health care and education.

Barbara has been recognized for her leadership by business, the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs (who named her Legislator of the Year 2010), the Washington Farm Bureau, the Washington State Retired Teachers Association, the International Organization of Masters, Mates and Pilots, the NRA amd was named Legislator of the Year 2007 by the Washington Economic Development Association.

Barbara is also recognized as a leader in her community and is active in the U.S. Navy League, the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce and in her church.

The 10th District is fortunate to have such an excellent candidate to represent us. I strongly endorse Barbara Bailey and encourage all of you to get to know Barbara.
