Dear family, friends, citizens and business associates:
Larry Carter Announces Campaign for State Representative in the 24th District
Port Ludlow, WA - The 24th legislative district needs a representative who will listen to the people – not to the I-5 Corridor special interests. “Therefore, I am announcing my campaign for State Representative for Washington‘s 24th Legislative District, Position 2,” candidate Larry Carter announced today.
“My opponent, Lynn Kessler, has been in Olympia for a long time and that can take a toll on anyone. But which has been a bigger priority for her, maintaining her Majority Leader position, which requires considerable compromise, or representing the district? On February 19, 2010, she looked me square in the eye and told me that she would set aside I-960 and impose a tax increase on the people in Washington State. Not one word about going to the root of the problem … massive state spending,” Carter says.
“I grew up in Louisiana, where most folks were conservative Democrats who supported economic growth and development and believed the government worked best when it simply left us alone. The representatives in Washington State seem to believe only the government knows what is best for our checkbooks, property, and children. They’re wrong.
“Washington State is heavily in debt because the current leadership has ignored the warnings. We need new and creative leadership at the helm now more than ever.” Carter, a retired Navy Command Master Chief, has that leadership. A Command Master Chief, he explains, is very involved in financial and project management, and with personnel issues. Earlier in his career, he ran nuclear power plants on submarines, aircraft carriers and cruisers, and taught nuclear power plant operations and theory to student operators during two tours of duty at a Nuclear Power Training Unit in Idaho Falls, ID.
Throughout his Navy career Carter built teams. “My success in the Navy can be attributed to the outstanding support I received from the teams that I built and led. Working with the legislature also requires teamwork. And for the past legislative session, the conservatives have been excluded from that team by the Legislative Majority Leader,” he says.
Carter and his wife, Bugsy, “are building teams to launch a new kind of campaign,” he says. “Please join my campaign where fund-raising is taken off the table; where the people of District 24 take the lead in getting this message out to everyone in the district.” Carter’s goal is a true grass-roots campaign. “A legislator shouldn’t be beholden to any special interests,” he stresses. “I want to represent all the people of the 24th legislative district as their state legislator. I will accept no contributions from Political Parties, Corporations, NGOs, or individuals. I want your vote, not your money.”
Please contact Larry by email email@example.com or telephone 360-301-2264 if you are willing to assist him in his campaign to bring financial sanity and personal responsibility back to the 24th District, and Washington State.
