A vote for Drew Hansen | Letteer

I voted for Drew Hansen for state representative and hope you will too. In a 30 year career in local government, in both staff and elected positions, I’ve had the good fortune to work with thousands of local elected officials and hundreds of legislators. In his first term as state representative, Drew Hansen ranks up there with the very best of them.

Drew has helped job training programs at Olympic College. He supports a great educational system.  He’s focused on building the economy. He led the effort to save Kitsap taxpayers millions in our efforts to acquire 7,000 acres of forestland for future generations in North Kitsap.

These are all examples of what Drew has done and show that he produces results. They give us confidence that he will be equally effective on our behalf in the future.

Most important to me are Drew’s values and character. I’ve watched Drew and I’m impressed. Drew reaches out to his constituents for information, he listens carefully to us, he develops partnerships and then he delivers results. Drew’s outreach, openness and responsiveness are refreshing. Whatever issues arise in the future, I have confidence that Drew will work with us to find the right solutions.
