SNOHOMISH – State Rep. Hans Dunshee (D-Snohomish), chair of the House Capital Budget Committee and the lead architect of the 2012 Jobs Now package, announced today that he will run for re-election.
“I’m running for re-election because I believe in the greatness of Washington State,” said Hans. “The last few years have been tough on everybody but as clichéd as it may be, I have tremendous hope for tomorrow. I am determined to help build a better Washington through job creation and increased educational and vocational opportunities for students of every age; and to continue efforts to ensure access to affordable, quality health care and a healthy environment. I have more work to do.”
Rep. Dunshee points to the bi-partisan passage of the Jobs Now package which will create almost 20,000 construction-related jobs and 9,000 long term jobs throughout the state, as a primary reason for his optimism:
“There were many times when the Jobs Now bill stalled. It would have been easy to get discouraged or shrug it off and say it couldn’t be done; that is was too hard or that government has no business investing in job creation. That’s not how I’m wired. I dig in, I reach out to my colleagues across the region and across the aisle and I get it done. ”
Hans has lived and worked in Snohomish County for over 30 years. He has he owned, operated and managed two successful businesses, volunteered as a firefighter and served on many community boards. He has earned the respect and support from local law enforcement, working men and women, seniors and small-business owners year after year.
