To the editor:
As our representative in the 23rd District, Drew Hansen has worked hard to improve the region’s economic opportunities. He is a hard-working legislator whose articulate, energizing speeches on the House floor have won bipartisan support for legislation to help veterans enter the civilian workforce, remove a tax barrier to new Kitsap County jobs and expand the Olympic College engineering program.
Drew was endorsed by both the North Kitsap Herald and the Kitsap Sun.
Before entering the Legislature, he served for six years on the Olympic College Foundation board and as the appointed public representative on the Community Economic Revitalization Board, Washington’s principal economic development board.
A father of two young children, Drew is a strong advocate for public schools and affordable college tuition. He is a regular ferry commuter who fought for full ferry funding and Puget Sound cleanup. He cut his own pay to help balance the budget.
Let’s keep Drew working for great jobs, strong schools, clean air and water, and economic opportunity for all.
