Other Guest Speakers

Jim Walsh was elected in 2016 to the state House of Representatives and sworn into office on December 8 of that year. He represents the 19th District, which includes parts of Cowlitz, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pacific, Thurston and Wahkiakum counties. Jim is only the third Republican to represent the district since the 1940s.

Jim’s legislative priorities are creating family-wage jobs, adequately funding schools, and protecting taxpayers, property rights and gun rights. He wants to diversify the economies of his coastal communities and bring new opportunities to his constituents. Jim believes an effective local school system is vital to ensure a full economic recovery.

Jim is committed to bipartisanship and finding common-sense solutions in the Legislature. He is the ranking member of the House Civil Rights and Judiciary Committee. He also serves on the Transportation Committee and the Regulated Substances and Gaming Committee.

Jim graduated cum laude from Amherst College in 1986. He formed a small publishing company in 1998 that he continues to operate today. Jim has also written columns for the Aberdeen Daily World newspaper, coached boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, and held leadership roles with local and state Republican groups.

Joe Kent is a retired 20-year-veteran of our nation’s Special Forces and a widower raising his two young sons in Yacolt, Washington State. His wife, who also served, was killed while fighting ISIS in Syria.

Following his military service and work as an field operative in the CIA, Joe served as a foreign policy advisor to President Trump and as a project manager for a technology company before retiring on his military pension in January of 2023 to devote himself fully to the campaign.

Joe’s candidacy for US Congress is focused on restoring common sense Republican values and defeating the woke extremist Democrat Congresswoman Marie Perez.

Born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba, Dr. Garcia emigrated to the United States at the age of eleven. He came to the U.S. after living in Madrid, Spain and settled in Miami, Florida. He is a proud graduate of Miami Senior High School and the University of Miami where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology/ Immunology. Everywhere he has been, Dr. Raul Garcia has made change. His love to start and change organizations, healthcare, hospitals, communities, and people’s attitude towards the positive future of this great country of ours, continues every day. He is also very proud and committed to spend time being a father of five children and a husband to his wonderful wife, Jessica.

In 2020, Dr Garcia commenced his aspirations as a public servant when he announced his candidacy for the office of Governor of his beloved state of Washington. Dr. Garcia would say that it was the best decision that he and his wife Jessica have made in their lives realizing the need for fresh leadership to a political world that has failed in many ways. Although Dr. Garcia did not win the Gubernatorial primary race in 2020, his passion to help and improve WA State continues.
