Question for candidates

State House, Position 2

Larry Carter, R-Port Ludlow
"When I talk to my friends and neighbors, there are two common beliefs that we all share. First, we love living on the Olympic Peninsula. The other is that we are deeply concerned about the direction our state is heading. I will clarify my positions in (the) future."

Jack Dwyer, D-Montesano
"I am running for the House of Representatives because I truly feel that this district needs good leadership. We have much to do. Jobs are our most important priority. We need good jobs with fair wages and benefits and we need to retrain those who have lost jobs as industries have changed."

Jim McEntire, R-Sequim
"Today, our state's governance does not, cannot and will not get us to the economic future all of us desire for our posterity. Gone is the 'priorities of government' approach to balancing the state budget. I'm running for office to be a part of a more fiscally responsible state Legislature."

Steve Tharinger, D-Sequim
"The Legislature and the 24th Legislative District face a number of serious challenges during this recession. I have a proven record of fiscal responsibility and working to make government efficient, effective and accountable. Clallam County is one of two counties in the state that has no general fund debt obligation."
