I am a life-long Seattlelite and small business owner.
I am fiscally conservative and socially moderate, which makes me a Centrist. Our two recognized political parties have both swung too far to the end of the spectrum. I would like to see them both swing back to the middle. I don't think that is going to happen in my lifetime, so I feel it is time for new candidates to represent the center.
Tax reform is needed that is fair and balanced.
I believe candidates from the middle of the political spectrum can lessen the current polarization. Taking the best from both parties and finding a balance.
