I am writing this letter of support for Rick Jansons for 8th District state representative. I have worked with Rick for several years on the Washington State School Directors Association legislative committee.
The first thing that Rick does is listen. Unlike many who start talking, he asks questions and listens. His positions are well-researched and studied prior to forming his opinion or direction. Rick does his homework. Although at times we found our positions on opposite sides of an issue, there were no hard feelings: we just worked through it.
Mr. Jansons is very community-minded and has worked on many efforts in our community. He is a true leader in our community and will do a great job as your 8th District state representative.
Larry Ayre, Kennewick
