Vote Now! Levi’s Primary Picks

posted in: Chair's Corner | 0

Here are my picks for the Primary. Happy to talk to anyone about these picks over email ( or phone – (360)929-4164.

A few notes:
These are my picks, not the picks of the SJCRP. This list is almost identical to Cindy’s Picks that many of you received right after ballots dropped. I’ve included comments from Cindy with mine. Neither list is an official endorsement of any candidate by the SJCRP.
I’m making no recommendation in the county council race. This is a non-partisan office, and many of us personally know the candidates, so we can vote based on first-hand knowledge.

Short Answer:
US Senate: Chris Vance
US Representative: Marc Hennemann
WA Governor: Bill Bryant
Lt. Governor: Marty McClendon
Sec. of State: Kim Wyman
State Treasurer: Michael Waite
State Auditor: Mark Miloscia
Attorney General: Joshua Trumbull
Commissioner of Public Lands: Steve McLaughlin
Superintendent of Public Instruction: Ron Higgins
Insurance commissioner: Richard Schrock
Supreme Court Justice: Greg Zempel

Long Answer:
US Senate: Chris Vance

Levi: Chris has been around Washington Republican politics for a long time, and has made some enemies. Despite that, he offers the best fight against Patty Murray. His stated fiscal policy positions are pretty solid, too.

US Representative: Marc Hennemann

Cindy: He is not a smooth politician, but he has his facts right. He would be a definite improvement over the current.

Levi: Marc has an uphill battle, but I’m pleased we have someone against Larsen. Marc leans more libertarian.

WA Governor: Bill Bryant

Cindy: Bill Bryant BEST candidate we have running this year!!! He would make such a huge difference in the choking of our bureaucracies that you wouldn’t even believe it. Talk about making a difference, his plans really would bring living wage jobs to the state and he is the reason to vote this year…PLEASE vote for him!!!!

Levi: Wow! Bill has fantastic ideas on education and regulatory reform. We desperately need him heading up Olympia.

Lt. Governor: Marty McClendon

Levi: This was a tough one! Marty represents solid, conservative principles. Think “Ted Cruz conservative.”

Sec. of State: Kim Wyman

Cindy: Kim Wyman has done a wonderful job of working to make our government elections run more efficiently and has cleaned up the voter roles. She really has done a great job for both sides of the coin, and while our SJC elections dept may not approve, their state website is not working today, she NEEDS to be re-elected!!!!

Levi: Bottom line: she wants to move our Presidential Primary earlier in the year. Let’s give her the chance to do that!

State Treasurer: Michael Waite

Levi: Another tough one, but having been on the management team at a company with 70 billion dollars in assets, I think he knows how to manage money. He comes from a private sector perspective, something I believe we need.

State Auditor: Mark Miloscia

Cindy: Mark Miloscia Mark looks like a sharp guy and says all the right things. After the last Democrat was indicted on charges of being in possession of stolen property, lying and money laundering, I think it is time to switch it up a bit.

Levi: Mark has an impressive history of working as an auditor in various organizations. A great substitute for the Democrat who was indicted on Federal charges.

Attorney General: Joshua Trumbull

Cindy: Joshua Trumbull Well qualified and knows our rights, he would be a good one to elect to this position.

Levi: The current AG sued Arlene’s flowers. Trumbull is not a Republican, but I’d vote for just about anyone over the incumbent.

Commissioner of Public Lands: Steve McLaughlin

Cindy: With many dead trees because of the tree boring beetle, our lands need some major work or we will have out of control wildfires for years. We need someone who will actually use this fire hazard for benefitting our schools. Yes, timber sales from public lands benefit the public schools. Then we don’t need to raise our taxes to increase funding for the schools. The other candidates don’t seem to understand this concept.

Superintendent of Public Instruction: Ron Higgins

Cindy: Ron Higgins I voted for Ron 4 years ago and he was close. He would have been a much better choice than the current Dorn. He believes in school choice, and in making the public schools good enough so they will be competitive with the other school choices. Most of the other qualified people (lots of nuts in many of these races) seem to think charter schools are the enemy. No, a lack of good education is the enemy. Vote for Ron

Insurance commissioner: Richard Schrock

Supreme Court Justice: Greg Zempel

Cindy: Greg Zempel Of the two viable candidates, Greg actually thinks people should be treated fairly. The current justice seems to think she needs to manipulate.

Levi: The State Supreme court seems to think that it runs the show in Washington State. We need a shake up.

Dear Fellow Conservatives,

Happy Independence Day! As we enjoy parades and picnics, and fireworks and family, I would like to offer three quotes that make me reflect on why we celebrate this day. Two quotes come from leaders with a mixed legacy, and one comes from a great American founder:

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” –Woodrow Wilson

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” –Nelson Mandela

“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” –Thomas Jefferson

Roll back creeping tyranny. Build a better tomorrow for everyone. Guard the God-given rights of humanity. On July 4th, 1776, fifty-six Americans signed their names at the bottom of a document, pledging “our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor” to make those very goals a reality.

On July 4th, 2015, I’m not just celebrating that I have more freedom than most of the people on planet Earth. I’m not just celebrating that I’m proud to be an American. I’m celebrating the opportunity to carry the same torch of liberty lit by those fifty-six men 239 years ago today.

Will you carry that torch with me?

Let freedom ring,

Levi Rawls
