Campaign themes

Metz's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Reduce the burden of Government on local business and communities

  • Excerpt:"I support the requirement for a 2/3 supermajority helps the Legislature focus on only the most important expenditures"

Help families succeed during difficult times

  • Excerpt:"We need to strengthen the support to families. Not all things need to cost money, but it means trying to link people and community resources, neighborhoods pitching in, support networks from Churches, and other institutions before resorting to the Government safety net."

Ensure accountability in children's education along with parental encourage to strengthen schools for the 21st Century.

  • Excerpt:"The State Constitution names education as a top priority and the focus of efforts should be on K-12."

Respect property rights

  • Excerpt:"I believe that property rights in Washington are under constant challenge from our government regulations at both the state and Federal levels."

Support Veterans and currently serving members and ensure the necessary resources are available for them and their families.
