Dear Friends,

I’m running for office now because we need more accountability and fiscal responsibility in our state government for the health of our state’s economy, families and future.

I understand firsthand the need to reduce government waste in Olympia.

For over 20 years I’ve worked in the private sector for major companies including Dell, Pillsbury, Frigidaire, and small businesses. I know what it takes to “do more with less” and have led collaborative teams with competing interests to find meaningful solutions.

During the past ten years of my private sector experience I worked directly with the State of Washington agencies in Olympia and WA K-12 school districts across the state. My private sector experience working with Washington State Government gives me an important advantage as candidate for State Representative.

Through mutual efforts with government agency and school district leaders I led efforts to identify opportunities to be addressed, and implemented more efficient solutions benefiting students, teachers and taxpayers.

I will focus on achieving legislative solutions which reduce waste, taxes, and regulations in order to increase business growth and job opportunities for WA families and communities.

Together we can make a difference in our state. I would appreciate your vote and support.

Vicki understands how to improve accountability and foster fiscal responsibility from her experience with successful businesses in the private sector. She supports and has worked for less govenment and lower taxes. In my 30 years as a Manager in a Fortune 500 company, I have met few I can endorse so completely.
