Rep. Glenn Anderson Announces Run for Lieutenant Governor

January 5, 2012
For Immediate Release

Well-regarded legislator calls for bipartisan creation of family-wage private-sector jobs

Glenn AndersonFall City, WA — State Representative Glenn Anderson (R-Fall City) today announced his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor in the November 2012 elections.

“We all know that our nation and state face exceptionally challenging circumstances. This situation requires very hard work and creativity to recapture the American Dream in Washington,” said Anderson.    “Olympia must step out of its comfort zone of bending to organized special interests – of both the left and the right – to empower the greater, common good.”

“The current Lieutenant Governor has now served 16 consecutive years, and is seeking re-election to a fifth term. What will the citizens of the state get in the next four years that they failed to achieve in the last 16 from the incumbent?”

The Glenn Anderson 2012 campaign will focus on re-energizing the Lieutenant Governor’s office as a force for thoughtful independent thinking and advocacy in solving the problems facing our state.  “When travelling around our state the number-one concern I hear from citizens is their frustration. They say ‘How do we restart our future and what are we trying to achieve?’ In this economy, we all struggle with economic and personal challenges.  I’m going to try to change that,” Says Anderson. “That means really challenging Olympia to break the business-as-usual attitude. But it also means challenging voters on what it takes to deliver a prosperous future.  Are we going to build and own our future? Or, will we merely allow Olympia to argue as it just happens?”

Anderson’s 2012 campaign for Lieutenant Governor will emphasize four major themes:

  1. Enabling individual prosperity and aggressively encouraging the creation of new, family-wage, private sector jobs.
  2. Investing in our children’s future and assuring that our K-12 schools, colleges and universities are adequately funded -- and held accountable for results.
  3. Rebuilding our social services safety net to assure it provides a hand-up to opportunity and achievement while honoring human dignity, not dependency, on government.
  4. Demanding state government live within the taxpayers’ means to provide essential services.
