In June, I joined Brad Klippert's campaign team, but at the time, I did not know much about Brad, I just wanted to be involved. Over the last few months, as I have had an opportunity to know Klippert better, he has impressed me. Klippert is not your stereotypical politician who will flip flop on issues, and is out to benefit himself more then represent his constituents. Klippert has a strong sense of who he is as a man, is willing to stand on his convictions, and win or lose on them. Regardless of your political affiliation, I believe this is a trait everyone can respect.
Klippert is also one of the hardest-working men I have ever met. He works for the Benton County Sheriff's Office, is a Lt. Colonel in the Nation Guard, and works for you as your representative in the 8th Legislative District. He has to take a leave of absence from his job in the sheriff's office and a cut in his pay for two months when he travels to Olympia, and he does so with no reservations. This country needs more elected officials like Brad Klippert.
