OF, BY & FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE:
(Americans are citizens - period; not 2nd class citizens to outsiders.)
With the globalist mentality paralyzing the Washington Legislature, and a majority of legislators refusing to distinguish between citizens and foreigners on state documents, Americans in Washington are not even sure, in 2018, if we will even be allowed in airports and federal buildings in the future without paying special fees to enhance our drivers' licenses/IDs or purchasing a passport. This means some won't have a problem, maybe, in traversing this and other ridiculous PC rules, but commoners (the Common Man) will be or will continue to be treated like second-class citizens in our own country. It's time to start voting as if "nation" means anything anymore.
No new or additional taxes on homeowners' utilities without a majority approval in an election. Additionally, make it harder for real estate companies and tycoons to raise rents above 5% in a calendar year for multi-family housing. Additionally, place a surtax, to provide funding for homeless housing and shelters, on any real estate company that raises rents 3% or more in consecutive years.
Enact family-friendly statutes and regulations for educational funding and business and job prosperity. Education is a 2-way street: and my focus is to provide the policies necessary or helpful for government, families and students to do their part. Also, educationally, would like to see the state put a greater emphasis on connecting students to the trades (job fields that have long been understaffed).
Mark Greene is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, with honorable active duty service from 1972-74. Despite the incumbents' braggadocio about her commitment to veterans, Kristine Reeves gets a high salary from her non-legislative job to work on veterans' issues. She gets paid good money to be "committed."
Mark Greene, however, has advocated for veterans, without pay, for decades, including that no veteran should be homeless, meaning the federal and/or state government should provide for basic shelter for those veterans that are in dire financial circumstances and homeless.
A state law should be enacted that gives American citizens clear preference for all jobs that they're qualified for. This should not violate the "national origin" clause of the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964, but Congress, the states and the courts will need to protect citizens' rights better than what current interpretation of laws and regulations, generally, imply or specify. That means changing some laws.
Some state help for funding of municipal and local police departments; infrastructure upgrades, including earthquake retrofitting for buildings, bridges and homes. The importance of the state being in accord with the U.S. constitution's Bill of Rights for bills or statutes involving self-defense, sportsmanship, and legal hunting of game; and in making sure that all gun safety legislation and statutes are in accord with federal and state constitutions, as they relate to balancing the rights of ownership, public safety and privacy.
THE AMERICAN COMMONER: STRENGTH & NATION.
