Representative Hayes champions better transportation
Having raised a family in the 10th District, Dave understand the importance of making sure our transportation needs are met and maintained. Dave will continue to work with local communities and both parties in Olympia to expand cost effective transportation options and speed completion of needed traffic projects.
Dear 10th District Citizen,
When I was in high school, I did some bull and bronc riding. Some days in Olympia those memories return as I work to reign in well meaning folks and special interests who want to move your tax dollars away from our basic priorities: a quality education, cost effective traffic projects; aid to our most vulnerable citizens, and public safety.
In representing you I will continue to apply these principles: Government cannot spend what we don't have, or look for more money from overtaxed citizens; Government must account for every dollar spent, and must foster, not discourage, a climate where good jobs are created and our citizens prosper. I will vote on the merits of an issue, not on the basis of party; and, I want your input.
