Based on our current property taxes, car tabs and the amount of stuff we buy, Sound Transit 3 will cost us $2,000 a year for many years and I will never use it based on our transportation needs, the location of our house, retirement, etc.

American voters need to know where candidates stand on reforming our democracy so every voice is heard. Democracy does not work when special interest money drowns out the voices of everyday Americans. We voters want to know where the candidates stand on the Fight Big Money agenda. The agenda urges candidates to explain their stances on specific policy reforms - especially overturning Citizens United. Other reforms include ensuring full disclosure of political contributions and making sure our campaign finance laws are strictly enforced.
I have known Ramiro Valderrama more than 11 years and have worked with him on various projects. For example, before he was a City of Sammamish council member, he strongly advocated for fiscal responsibility in our city's government by presenting an alternative design for the East Lake Sammamish Parkway project. He addressed the safety concerns on the parkway and his proposal was one-tenth (one-tenth!) the cost of the city's original plan. He organized Citizens for Sammamish and helped promote positive dialog with the city. He has done an incredible job as deputy mayor of Sammamish and will be able to do even more for us as a lawmaker for the 45th District House in Olympia.

I am writing to ask everyone in the 45th District to vote Ramiro Valderrama for our representative. He has proven time and again that the citizens are his highest priority.
