OK, that’s not totally accurate: In his floor speech Feb. 22
in support of House
Resolution 4672 honoring the Navy, Rep. Drew
Hansen of Bainbridge Island recounted the wartime naval service experiences

glamorous or even interesting. But that helped Hansen make his point: that
while heroic deeds win medals, it also takes the steady performance of routine
duties to win wars.
House Democrats are working on issues that matter: creating good jobs and a competitive business climate, building strong schools, protecting the environment and making government more accountable and efficient.
Democracy works best when citizens are accurately informed and fully engaged. We hope this blog helps you learn more about what House Democrats are doing to build a better future for all of us who live, work, and do business in this state.
