Issues

Campaign themes

Richards's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Job Creation

  • Excerpt:"We must get people back to work! Most of us know someone who is out of work, has had their hours reduced or who are barely making it. Unemployment in the state and in the 26th District has been too high for too long."

Education

  • Excerpt:" Our children deserve an improved education system, and the economy and businesses of the future require that the graduates of our public schools be prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the future."

Responsible Government

  • Excerpt:"I will bring new perspective and different experience to Olympia —-at a time when it is desperately needed."

Performance Standards in Government

  • Excerpt:"I will work to create an environment in Olympia focused on standards-based performance. An environment where goals are set within each agency and department, and state employees are expected to achieve those goals."

Competition in Government

  • Excerpt:"Competition drives innovation. Innovation drives efficiency. By changing some of the ways business gets done in Olympia, improved efficiency and savings will be realized."
