Chairman Hutchison Connects Amazon Announcement to 45th
Susan Hutchison, Chairman of the WSRP, tied the Amazon announcement that they will seek a “second and equal” headquarters outside of Washington to the special election in the 45th Legislative District.
“The Seattle politicians, all of whom are democrats don’t provide the stable, business friendly environment that allows companies to grow jobs. Amazon has sent a strong signal that they are preparing for a future outside of Seattle and this state. This is a Boeing déjà vu.“
“I’ve seen the polls and watched focus groups with real people who live in the 45th—Redmond, Woodinville and Sammamish and they despise Seattle values, which include an illegal, unconstitutional income tax that the voters have rejected 9 times! The democrat candidate in the 45th brings her Seattle values home with her.”
“Voters in the 45th and across the state, need to understand that the Senate majority rides on this election. We believe balance is what the voters want in Olympia, and they won’t get balance if Republicans don’t win the 45th. Amazon reminds us that these are very high stakes.”
