Wellman is just another bureaucrat | Letter

The last thing the Eastside needs is poor leadership – which is exactly what you get with Lisa Wellman.

The last thing the Eastside needs is poor leadership – which is exactly what you get with Lisa Wellman. As a parent, I want safe, effective schools for my kids that afford them ample opportunities to succeed later in life.

Why would I vote for a candidate who’s struggled in the private sector and is completely unready to solve our education problems? Wellman isn’t a leader; she’s just another bureaucrat looking for a job on our dime.

That’s why I will be voting next month to re-elect Steve Litzow, who has served us faithfully as our senator for years. In that time, Litzow has worked across the aisle, earned the support of local employers and parents of students and co-sponsored the bill to add critical education investments. That’s real leadership, not just talk. Steve’s got my vote.
