Campaign website
Eric Hingsberger was a 2012 Democratic candidate for District 25a of the Washington House of Representatives.


Campaign themes


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

  • Budget
Excerpt: "My top budgetary concern is for the maintenance of education funding in our state. Let me be as clear as I can: my top priority as a legislator will be to ensure the success of our schools through appropriate funding and support."
  • Education
Excerpt: "The education of our children is my number one priority. I believe Washington can offer the best public education experience in the country. Realizing this vision begins with education funding."
  • Public Safety
Excerpt: "I believe in the public's right to feel safe and secure in their communities and in their homes. Criminals victimize not only individuals but the community as a whole. Offenders who continually victimize others have no place in our communities and have no value to our society."
  • Transportation
Excerpt: "Our state's businesses, both small and large, benefit from adequate infrastructure. Transportation will be key to our state's successful recovery from the deep recession we have endured."
  • Marriage Equality
Excerpt: "Senate Bill 6239, signed by Governor Gregoire on February 13, 2012, legalized same-sex marriages in Washington. I believe all humans should be treated equally and fairly. This includes the right of consenting adults to enter into marriage within the bounds of our established laws. Refusing to allow members of our society equal participation in marriage must be called what it is: discrimination. "
