Governor Inslee and Commissioner of the State Employment Security Department, Suzi LeVine, recently disclosed a Nigerian Crime Syndicate scam that robbed Washington State Taxpayers of ‘hundreds of millions’ in unemployment support.

There is a leadership vacuum at the top, beginning with the Governor; and the Democrat Majority party appears complacent to let working families and small businesses suffer. Elected Officials are stewards of taxpayer funds, but that has been forgotten in Olympia.

As your State Representative, my priority is YOU; the taxpayer, the small business owner, and the working families. I will help deliver a much needed political and ideological makeover to Olympia to hold government accountable!

Peter Abbarno, Candidate for State House of Representatives in the 20th Legislative District.
