Bill Scheidler was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 26a of the Washington House of Representatives.[1]


Campaign themes


Scheidler's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2][3]


  • Excerpt: "I advocate a traditional education at least through a 4-year college with a strong focus in math, science and writing skills. And I would choose a school that has a reputation for quality, a dedicated teaching staff and a curriculum that emphasizes the sciences."

Public Schools

  • Excerpt: "The problem with public education isn't an inability to attract good teachers, it is the inability to remove incompetent or the simply lazy teacher. I know the personnel office gets thousands of resume's from teachers who would love to get a job in the public school system... but can't because the "unions" favor seniority over competence and this is what plagues public education."
  • Excerpt: "I also believe those that can afford it, a tuition should be required rather than a levy, to fund those activities 'outside' basic education. This includes union negotiated programs for teachers."

Minimum Wage

  • Excerpt: "To me, it makes some sense to look at the minimum wage issue as 'age specific' rather than one wage fits all. To say it another way, leave the minimum wage as is for young workers and gradually increase it with age. An attractive minimum wage should not compete with getting an education."


  • Excerpt: "I also believe that lawyers should not be allowed to run for legislative office. All lawyers belong to a state agency, the WA State Bar, and are regulated by the WA Supreme Court. To allow lawyers to also serve in the WA State Legislature presents a “separation of powers” issue and needs to be resolved by expelling lawyers from the legislature."
