Letter: Get state government back on track, vote Republican


Democrats have controlled our state government for 40 years and, as our crumbling infrastructure, higher taxes, and runaway spending demonstrate, it is high time for a change.

Those of us in Legislative District 10 have an excellent opportunity to help turn things around with three very principled candidates who care about our community because they are part of it.

Our state Sen. Ron Muzzall deserves our vote, as do Bill Bruch and Greg Gilday, who are seeking election to the two House of Representative seats.

Bill Bruch is challenging an incumbent who voted to increase taxes every time a measure came before the Legislature. He also voted “yes” on the controversial sex education bill.

Greg Gilday is running for the open seat left when Norma Smith retired this year. With a constant push to impose even more taxes, including a state income tax, we need Ron Muzzall, Bill Bruch and Greg Gilday to look out for our interests in Olympia.

Please vote for our three honorable and dedicated Republican candidates to put our state government back on track to serve the people.
