Rylands ready to lead District 31

Having worked with Michelle Rylands in our schools and on the Auburn Council of PTAs, I know that there is no one who cares more, works harder or is better at serving our community than her.

Her leadership on passing our technology levy in 2014 and then our school bond in 2016 was vital. She deftly navigated various community interests and made sure that all viewpoints were heard and balanced in the final work. These skills are the same ones that I want to see in Olympia.

Michelle is pragmatic, hardworking and results oriented. Given our state Senate’s inability to pass a capital budget this year, we need a senator like Michelle who will roll up her sleeves and make sure that the job gets done and that the 31st District is well represented in the process.

We need real people in Olympia who are focused on results and will rise above the partisan gamesmanship that is holding our state back. I will be voting for her.
