Sylvia Hammond for state legislature

Print Article

Iím writing to ask everyone in Grant County to vote for Sylvia Hammond to represent us in our state legislature. Sylvia is a moderate Democrat who has a common sense approach. She has a background we can respect and a practical knowledge of our unique concerns here on Grant County. Having been a farmer and a teacher, she will take our important perspective to Olympia. She knows how to work hard and will ensure that our concerns are not neglected in Olympia. She has striven to run a clean campaign even though her opponent has been fired from his tenured job at CWU after being investigated for sexually inappropriate behavior with female students, stripped of his ranking position in a House committee and asked by his party to resign and is suing his former employer. He claims he wonít serve if he does win the election. He doesnít deserve your valuable vote. Letís send Sylvia to Olympia. She is ready to listen to us, ready to work without embarrassing distractions and to represent us with dignity. Vote for Sylvia Hammond for Legislative District 13 representative.
