Ryan Gabriel was a 2012 Republican candidate for District 36b of the Washington House of Representatives.


Campaign themes


Gabriel's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement
Excerpt: "...the tunnel plan now has the State and its partners coming up short $700 Million. ...I believe the only way to protect Seattle taxpayers is with strong advocacy at the State level to encourage the Washington State Legislature to cover some of the likely cost overruns."
  • Environmental Priorities
Excerpt: "I will also fight to ensure Washington's unique environmental priorities, like restoring the Puget Sound, continue to be met - with better results."
  • Liquor Licensing Laws
Excerpt: "I applaud Seattle voters for siding with the rest of the State to reform our liquor licensing laws, and see this as further evidence that Seattle is a city that still believes in private enterprise and pro-liberty causes."
  • Taxes and Spending
Excerpt: "I will not ever vote for a tax increase in order to pay for a budget increase. Any temporary increases in spending must be offset with temporary decreases in costs elsewhere in the same fiscal year end budget - not offset for future taxpayers and future generations to anguish over."
  • Cannabis Legalization
Excerpt: "Marijuana prohibition is legacy policy that the vast majority of the Seattle public wants to see either overturned or left unenforced, including many if not most Seattle Republicans. ...The State of Washington (and our local governments) also spend a staggering amount of money to stalk, prosecute and imprison peaceful civilians over frivolous drug possession offenses. ...[W]e need to legalize cannabis today."
  • Plastic Bag Ban
Excerpt: "I don't like plastic bags any more than the greenest environmentalist in San Francisco, but the idea that the Government has the right to outlaw them is preposterous in a free society. Our grocers and their customers ought to be able to choose whatever bag type they choose, without threat of fines, arrest, or punishment. The ban should be repealed."
  • Marriage Equality
Excerpt: "I see little role for the State to be in the business of defining marriage, or setting out the terms of our citizens' private, personal contractual relationships."
  • Chart Schools
Excerpt: "I support limited application of Charter Schools in our education system. Education reform will not happen without a permissive attitude toward new ideas and new processes."
