Hayes is good for the 10th District

How do you know for whom to vote? This is the question my 10-year-old put to me as we passed various political signs on the highway. Experience and leadership qualities were my responses. Citizens and voters of our great state deserve nothing less. Emotions and political commitment tend to cloud our common sense. Good intentions and feel-good votes end up costing us state budget woes, educational disarray and public safety concerns. Whether running a business, a school, or a state, our leaders need to be chosen by their proven experience and reputation.

Dave Hayes is a leader we need in Olympia. Dave Hayes served his country in the U.S. Navy. Dave Hayes has 21 years of law enforcement experience. Dave Hayes has proven leadership and Olympia political experience as president of the 4,500 member WA COPS (WA Council of Police and Sheriffs) organization. Our state deserves the best leaders. Our communities deserve the best representation. Our citizens deserve the best opportunities! Dave Hayes is the best candidate for State Representative 10th Legislative District.
