Bryant Lays Out Vision for Washington
“I will be an activist Governor”

(Pasco, Wash.) – Tonight, former Seattle Port Commissioner Bill Bryant laid out his vision for Washington in the last televised debate of the gubernatorial campaign held at Columbia Basin College. 

On issues from education, to homelessness, to traffic, Bryant demonstrated a clear-eyed approach to the problems facing the state.  He laid out multi-pronged solutions and pledged to be an activist governor who will lead the state and make measurable improvements to the quality of life for residents in every corner of the state.

Regardless of Governor Inslee’s happy talk, independent analysis ranks Washington at the bottom in several key areas:

  • Unemployment ranks 8th highest in the nation
  • Adult mental health care ranks 50th worst in the nation
  • King County traffic ranks 4th worst in the nation
  • Homelessness in King County alone has increased 42% during Inslee’s first term

“On the key issues in this election, Governor Inslee’s record is one of failure and we need a governor who will be hands-on in moving us forward,” said Bryant.  I laid out a vision for my four years as governor and fulfilling that vision will require a forward looking, engaged, activist governor.  One not adverse to wading into difficult issues, one adept at building coalitions.
