Proud to vote for Isenhower | Letter

I’m proud to vote for Matt Isenhower for state Senate in the 45th Legislative District. Matt will work hard for our schools, roads and will work across the aisle to find real solutions down in Olympia.

I’ve been disappointed these past four years with Andy Hill’s tenure in our state Senate. With him in charge of the budget committee, our state almost shut down because he couldn’t get the job done. His inaction on education funding led the Washington State Supreme Court to threaten the legislature with contempt of court because they simply didn’t do their jobs.

I am also disgusted with Hill’s party. Not only do they lie on a national level, they have sent out misleading mailers attempting to discredit Matt on a local level. I guess they know how destructive Hill has been for the district so they have cannot promote his record; rather they make false accusations about his opponent.

Matt will be a voice for progress and a voice of reason down in Olympia. He is a true public servant, and has been his entire life; he grew up in Sammamish and served his community as an Eagle Scout, then served our nation in uniform in the Navy after he graduated from the Naval Academy. When he and his wife decided to move back home to raise their family, he became active with the Lake Washington Schools Foundation and King County Veterans Program Advisory Board.

Matt will be a strong voice for everyone in the 45th. I’m proud to have voted for him, and I encourage everyone who cares about our future to do the same before Aug. 5.

Ellen Bovarnick, Redmond
