Statement: Hi, I’m Thor Amundson, born and raised in Eastern Washington. I’ve lived and worked throughout the state, and this has given me the opportunity to talk with people in all walks of life, and to consider the variety of issues facing them. I believe that without a little more opportunity for the next generation, we cannot have a healthy civilization.
If corporations move to other countries, they should follow the same rules and labour practices as in the USA. Stop shipping logs, jobs, and clean air over seas. Re-think cities’ waste water being discharged into the Puget Sound/Salish Sea and tributaries. Turn off reactor at Hanford; stop making the mess. Nationwide public internet access for everyone and net neutrality. Ban the use of certain weed killers on federally funded sites. Overturn Citizen’s United.
Picture a state and a nation where your children can afford to live. A land without discrimination, and where the working person receives their just reward. A place where worker’s rights are protected; where innovative, effective leadership inspires; and where elected officials are chosen by the people, not by their financial contributors. Rather than propose campaign reform, I’m going to implement it. I am not an attorney, and I am not a politician. Therefore, there will be no question about who I am working for. I will lead Washington into the 21st century.
As the first Senator not financed by PAC money, and hailing from one of the best states in the Union, I will stir the very dredges of the old guard in Washington D.C., and at the same time provide inspiration to anyone else who truly cares about the future of our great Nation. I am backed by %100 of Orca. Please vote for Thor Amundson, U.S. Senate.
