George Fearing: 4th Congressional District deserves better representation

Democratic challenger George Fearing, who is running for Congress against Republican Doc Hastings in the 4th Congressional District, joined the Klickitat County Democrats on Thursday to present his priorities for a healthier Washington:
"Klickitat County needs more jobs and I would like to see some companies come here to develop alternative sources of energy such as wind power," said the Democratic candidate.

"If we don’t do something soon, that aluminum plant is going to be torn down and used for parts."

The Tri-Cities-area attorney, who cited listening as one of his political strengths, likened the legislative process to practicing law.

"A congressman is like a lawyer," he said. "You represent people and you put aside your own interests."
Fearing wants to ensure that new jobs come with a living wage and protect the common wealth in Central Washington, including the preservation of public lands that should be available to future generations.

In the first quarter of the year, Fearing outraised Hastings, though he still trails in cash on hand. The second quarter is almost over, but it's not too late to help George out. By making a donation, you can help Democrats compete in Eastern Washington. After all, what could be more fun than forcing Doc Hastings to actually campaign and debate the issues?
