and Fred Walser.
Scott is running to unseat Dan Kristiansen as the State Representative (Pos. 1) and Fred is challenging current State Senator, Val Stevens. This is Olson's 2nd run and the first for Walser. Both men are running on platforms that highlight needed highway safety fixes for both US 2 and SR 522. Considering the failures of the incumbents to produce any effective results in that area (and the many traffic fatalities related to those failures), we believe it is imperative for the citizens of the 39th LD to make a change; and that Scott and Fred would provide real solutions to the issues impacting that district.
Fred brings a lifetime of public service in the area of law enforcement and traffic safety to bear in his race. After serving 28 years with the Washington State Patrol, Fred served as Police Chief for the City of Sultan for the past 11 years. He has also served as Chair of the US 2 Safety Coalition. Fred is also concerned about education reform and told us that he would bring together all interested parties to come up with working solutions for the this urgent issue.
Scott comes to his race as a concerned citizen who has lived and worked in the district for many years. He has owned a small business in the area and keeps in touch with the locals as a bartender in Monroe. His previous electoral experience includes a term on the Sultan City Council. Scott is particularly concerned about education and healthcare.
DFSC is proud to lend our support to these fine candidates and encourage folks both in and out of the 39th LD to lend their support in every way possible.
Chair, Democracy for Snohomish County
