Serving the people is a
life long commitment
Bart just announced his entry into the race for the United States Congress 2nd District as the Republican candidate yesterday at the Buzz Inn Snohomish, with plans of rebuilding the image of politicians and politics saying it’s about trust.
“If you don’t have honesty and trust, you have nothing,” Bart said.
The seat is currently being held by Democrat Rick Larson. A seat he has held since 2001.
“Rick Larson is much respected, but we need change,” Bart said.
Shortly after his retirement as Snohomish County Sheriff in January, a position he held for 12 years, Bart realized his commitment and service to the people was not over.
“I did not know what to expect after I retired,” he said.
After so many years of serving Snohomish County (34 years) he quickly knew that trust was an important component to getting the job done. Bart’s campaign is about trust and what the people deserve.
In a press release Bart mentions that most people do not trust Congress at the moment, stating the reasons that nothing is getting done, and that the problems are getting worse.
He also says that taxes continue to rise as more Americans lose their homes to foreclosure.
“Raising taxes is not going to do it,” he said.
Bart has never ventured far from his community and his affiliation to local organizations attest to his character.
He is the President of Families and Friends of Violent Crime Victims, past President of the Washington Association of County Officials and for over eight years has sat on the Executive Board and Board of Directors for the National Sheriff’s Association.
Bart is also a former member of the Fight Crime Invest in Kids State Advisory Committee.
Change will take one person at a time Bart says, and the start is with him.
