Letter to the editor: Sharon Wylie is not the ideal candidate


A state representative is a politician who serves in a state legislative branch. These politicians represent local cities or counties, and help to form state laws that benefit constituents.

Sharon Wylie is seeking her seventh term. How has she done so far? She self-proclaims being the “leader who listens,” yet she has supported democratic tax raises with no relief for Washingtonians, even with a $40 billion surplus. She never responded to my concerns.

Wylie voted yes on HB 1319 to give more control to the government to regulate firearms. That should be a concern to Washingtonians since a 2020 Rand Corp Survey found 42% of Washingtonians own guns.

Wylie also voted yes on HB 5974, which seeks to increase the cost of fees for drivers and vehicle owners. 

She voted yes to hyper-regulate rideshare and delivery entities that would greatly impair gig workers, HB 2076.

She supports criminals over law-abiding citizens. See Chelsea’s Bill, her modifications. Shameful.

These are a few reasons why no one should vote for Wylie. Instead, vote for Park Llafet, who seeks to decrease taxes, support the police and find compassionate solutions for the homeless. He’ll work to ensure our rights in Vancouver.
