A vote for Jeff Wilson
September 10, 2020
To The Eagle:
As you’re thinking about who to vote for, it’s helpful to look at who supports various candidates.
Jeff Wilson is running against incumbent Dean Takko for state Senate. A look at the top 45 contributors to each campaign (PDC website) tells a story.
Mr. Takko’s top 45 includes 43 donors outside of the Senate district, and zero individuals (all PACs or businesses). Lots of his donors are headquartered in Seattle or Olympia.
Mr. Wilson’s top 45 includes three donors outside of the Senate district, and 42 individuals living, working, raising families, and worshiping in the district.
It’s true that Mr. Takko has a larger “war chest” of money. Whether we like it or not, money plays a big role in successful campaigns. Jeff Wilson understands that, but he puts more stock in support from people who will depend on him to take their ideas and thoughts and worries to Olympia.
I put more stock in the person who puts more stock in me and my neighbors. Please vote Jeff Wilson for state Senate.
