Campaign themes

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

Economy

  • Excerpt:"Smart, efficient use of our tax dollars. Eliminate waste, inefficiencies and poor decision making. Maintain an emergency fund"

WA Tax Structure

  • Excerpt:"Our regressive tax structure places the heaviest burden on the middle class. Honestly I don't think that we currently have the motivation in Olympia to make the needed changes to our tax structure."

Columbia River Crossing

Education

  • Excerpt:"Our future depends on the success for all of our children and what they get from our public schools. I plan to continue the fight for public schools. The regions economic vitality and the success of our county all depend on the next generation’s readiness for participation in the global economy."

Veterans Affairs

  • Excerpt:"One of the most important things the legislature can do to ensure our nation’s heroes aren’t left to become homeless is to provide stable economy for them to enter."
