Issues

Campaign themes

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

Transportation

  • Excerpt:"Congestion relief has not been a priority in Washington. This concerns everyone, citizens commuting to work, trucks delivering goods in a timely manner, or emergency service vehicles transporting people to the hospital."

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt:"Washington must become a more business-friendly state. While the overall business climate is important, our focus must be on small business."

The State Budget

  • Excerpt:"Washington must become a more business friendly state. In order to do that we must respect the taxpayers and show restraint when spending hard earned taxpayer dollars."

Education Funding and Reform

  • Excerpt:"Fund education first in the budgeting process. Give education its own line item in the budget, just as we do for transportation and healthcare. Stop pitting education against other budget priorities like public safety or care for the elderly. It is a false choice."
