I had an interview with Spokane Public radio, where I talked about Flipping the Washington 5th District "purple" (Independent). You can listen to that interview here:
The 5th District that makes up Eastern Washington is proud, wonderful mix of Conservatives and Progressives! Each point of view cares about our community deeply, just with a different world view. Together, we make up an amazing place to live!
In my interview, I probably should have said that we are going to flip the 5th district to burgundy. When choosing the logo for my campaign, I picked a color that was 60% red and 40% blue, just like our district. That color happens to a beautiful burgundy.
The reason that I wanted that color is because that is how I will represent people. It is frustrating for progressives to have a Republican representative, and frustrating for conservatives to have a Democrat representative. So why not have a representative that stands for people instead of a party?
That's why I stand for Country over Party, so that your needs are represented no mater what your political leaning.
