Hello My name is Mike Foster; I believe strongly in our freedom and human rights and am running for the Washington State 7th Legislative District position 2. I grew up in a farming town in Western Washington; Mount Vernon and currently live in Newport, Washington. In 1983 I was allowed to work at the age of 10 in strawberry fields and believe the children today should have the same opportunity to build a strong work ethic at a young age. I believe strongly that the rights of the people should not be infringed upon and will work with the honor, commitment and courage I did in the military as an honorable combat veteran to ensure our rights are returned. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology; minoring in Software Systems Engineering Specialization.
I would like to take my work, military and educational experience and serve the people of the 7th legislative district. My main goals will be to reduce regulation on small business which will increase small business job opportunities, reduce the price of health care and reform education giving parents more control over where their children attend and schools more control over their curriculum. I would much rather live with the inconveniences of freedom than the inconveniences of a totalitarian government. Thank you for taking the time to view my site, more information on my goals can be found on the issues tab.
