Our state and quite honestly our country are faced with a significant divide. On one side you have liberal urban voters, many of them radical supporters of extreme left-wing programs and policies. On the other side, rural voters, many of them libertarian or conservative simply want to be left alone to enjoy their freedoms and pursue opportunities to succeed. Much of what divides us is driven by our lifestyles. Where rural residents are largely responsible for their own transportation, water and sewer disposal, urban people are dependent on government for these services and vote accordingly.
Jesse Young understands the needs and desires of rural citizens. Emily Randall clearly does not. Jesse Young has consistently voted for conservative ideas and policies that enhance rural living. He helped make sure that our area would not be subject to the outrageous Sound Transit vehicle license fees. He supports our veterans, has worked to protect our groundwater that we depend on from being polluted and has worked on legislation to support rational low-income housing programs. He believes in and supports individual rights over radical collectivism driven by Seattle leftists.
Emily Randall consistently votes with radical Seattle Democrats for policies that harm the lifestyles and livelihoods of rural residents. She voted for radical carbon taxes that will drive up the cost of transportation critical to people living in rural areas. Thanks to Sen. Randall, we are looking at a 40-plus cent increase in gasoline prices in January. She supports extreme public safety restrictions like the pursuit limits on our police forces that have driven up crime in our otherwise quiet and peaceful area. She has never found a tax she doesn’t like. We quite literally cannot afford Emily Randall as our senator.
