Endorsements

“I am proud to endorse Carmen Goers for the 8th congressional district. Enumclaw is a community that prides itself on its independence, family values and being a hub for small businesses. Carmen, as a commercial banker, knows that over regulation and taxation can not only kill small businesses, but suffocate opportunity. Carmen and I spoke of faith, family and community.

I am proud to support her and her journey to become our next Congresswoman.”
