Letter: Vote for candidate Dave Paul for state House is a vote for integrity


Are you feeling we need some political relief — some integrity these days? Well, hallelujah, we have the unique opportunity to get an effective, facts-based doer in our corner as state representative this November.

You know, someone that truly knows and values our educational system — he’s a high level leader at our Skagit Valley College.

Someone that works with people across the aisle to create bridges to get somewhere rather than entrenched walls.

Someone that wants to serve the public interest as opposed to some sort of trickle down scheme that refuses to trickle.

Someone that accepts the indisputable evidence that our climate is changing, on our watch, from our activities and it’s high time to actually do something about it.

Dave Paul is the guy with the credentials to make positive change. If you get a chance to meet him you’ll enjoy his facts-based approach, be amazed that he actually listens, has an open mind and really answers questions and surprisingly volunteers to get some data and study complex issues before spouting some preconceived opinion.

Most importantly he will tackle the constant challenges and opportunities we face down the road with the new ideas and insight they demand. For a healthy and needed dose of fresh air, check out www.votedavepaul.com.
