ROBERT J. SUTHERLAND ANNOUNCES STATE REPRESENTATIVE CANDIDACY, DISTRICT 39
For Immediate Release
ROBERT J. SUTHERLAND Announces State Representative Candidacy, District 39
15 April 2018
Today, Robert J. Sutherland announces his candidacy to serve as State Representative, District 39. Sutherland is a U.S. Air Force veteran and former candidate for Congress in Washington's 1st District. Like so many residents here Sutherland feels that more needs to be done in order to relieve traffic congestion, improve property, water and gun rights, increase graduation rates, freeze property taxes, reduce homelessness, crime and illegal drug use. Some potential solutions are simpler than others, like adding lanes to busy roads and bridges at busy intersections and rail road crossings. Property taxes should be frozen at the level they were when a family buys a home, just like the loan amount and interest rates remain unchanged by law. This will help struggling families to stay in their homes during tough times, thus helping to reduce homelessness. By working with legislators to increase educational choices for parents, and by allowing their educational dollars to follow the child, Sutherland believes children will be better served leading to increased graduation rates, less drug use, less crime and less government assistance.
By being productive members of society joblessness and the State budget will decrease as tax revenues increase. As crime decreases so will the budget, freeing up additional money for other top priorities. All this, and more can and should be done at the State level. And it should have been done years ago, Sutherland believes. It wasn’t, which is why we are stuck in traffic, pay exorbitant property taxes and yet we have increased homelessness, crime, drug abuse and high school dropout rates. Sutherland, a military veteran and a scientist who helped develop cancer drug therapies is a problem solver. A vote for Sutherland is a vote to start fixing our local problems.
