Statement:

It’s been my honor to serve as one of your Port Commissioners for the last two years.

 

I ran for office to ensure that we have quality jobs at our port, protect our precious environment, and strengthen our region’s international competitiveness. 

 

Growing Jobs and Regional Competitiveness

 

I want the Port of Seattle to be a place that respects all the women and men who work there. That’s why I led our quality job initiative to raise the standard of living for airport contractors, enable every employee to grow in their careers and better serve the people of our region.  

 

For too long, the ports of Seattle and Tacoma were locked in race-to-the-bottom competition harming our region and state. In 2014, we launched the landmark Northwest Seaport Alliance and proved that collaborative leadership can get things done. This historic new partnership will ensure that our state’s largest two ports will work together to move Washington products around the globe and support good-paying jobs here at home.

 

Protecting Our Environment

 

Environmental protection is vital and remains my core priority.  We have made smart investments at SeaTac Airport and, in 2014, our airport was the first in North America to win a carbon emission award for reducing emissions by 8% in 3 years.  The Port must keep its commitment to cleaning up Puget Sound and the Duwamish River.

 

Moving Forward

 

But despite all of these accomplishments, there’s still much work to be done. We must continue to grow and improve SeaTac Airport, expand workforce training opportunities in the maritime and aviation sectors, and fulfill my commitment to make the Port an environmental leader.

 

With your support, we can continue to meet these challenges.

 

My husband Scott and I live in Seattle with our two daughters.  I would appreciate, and ask, for your vote.

Education: University educated in Germany, Sweden, and America, Goodspaceguy earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees (economic minors.)
Occupation: Shared Corporate Owner Goodspaceguy: “Unsabotage our shared, competitive, free market!”

Statement:

Warning: There are several people (some brilliant) who have been writing and producing under Goodspaceguy’s name (perhaps to cause him vote loss?) This is entirely unnecessary because Goodspaceguy can lose votes all by himself just by saying that the anti-free-market, minimum wage should be abolished so that less-productive, disadvantaged people can easily get work at their low market value. (Note: Jobs educate! Being forbidden to work by the minimum wage is terrible.)

 

You the people of King County own the Port of Seattle. Why are you subsidizing this business through your property tax and through your rent? Are you getting a prosperous King County? No! Goodspaceguy thinks you are getting a lower living standard.

 

Improving the economy by increasing jobs should be a goal of the port. Make it easy for the long-term unemployed and the homeless and the many beggars to get jobs somewhere in our competitive economy (where supply and demand sets prices.) Unsabotage our economy. Raise the people’s living standard by increasing production.

 

To fix your car, hire auto mechanics. To fix your economy, elect economists who understand business and the profit incentive. At university, Goodspaceguy spent much time studying business and economics. Because you have a super-duper high-cost port, Goodspaceguy believes cost control should be increased. Investor Goodspaceguy, a small spender and a big saver, has become prosperous. To increase business, Goodspaceguy hopes we will become willing to use business and economics principles to change from a high cost port to a low cost port!

 

To help Goodspaceguy raise the living standard, please study economics. Read the news. Listen to radio talk show hosts. Discuss and defend capitalism. Remember: when you vote for big spending candidates, you are voting to increase taxes and waste and wild, wild spending (with millions to the terrible tunnel?)
