LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Bailey is wrong choice

To the editor:

Barbara Bailey (R) is an unacceptable choice for Washington. In our legislature there are 23 ALEC members and Bailey is front and center.

Bill Moyers was on Channel 9 this weekend talking about ALEC (American Legislative Exchange) and their shortcut to legislation. The bills they introduce are the same as copying your school work from another kid. Even if you don’t get caught at it, it’s still wrong. Worse yet, if you don’t know what’s in there you don’t know who it’s benefiting. It certifiably won’t be Washington citizens.

Don’t be swayed by the R or D. Look at who they are what they stand for. Will they work for you or some shadowy, out-of-state interest? Local elections are far more important then national elections. Governors and presidents don’t write the laws, the House and Senate do. Make sure you know what’s going into those laws is honest!
