Elect Chad Magendanz, Representative 5th LD
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and learn more about my 2012 campaign
for the Washington State House of Representatives.
As an officer in the U.S. Navy, I pledged to support and defend the Constitution
of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic…and I am still
delivering on that promise today. I see challenges to our cherished way of life
in unsustainable government spending, the decline of our schools, the over-regulation
of our businesses, and everyday erosion of our constitutional rights.
During my career at Microsoft, I personally represented the company to U.S. senators
and congressional staff, state attorneys general, hundreds of Fortune 500 CEOs,
and thousands of industry insiders. As president of the Issaquah School Board, I’ve
represented the school district’s 17,831 students and 59,358 voters and supervised
its $294 million annual budget. Now I have a unique opportunity to apply my enthusiasm
and ability in serving families in the 5th Legislative District. Please allow me
the opportunity to support and defend your interests in Olympia.
Why am I running?
Quite simply…for our children! The legacy I
want to leave Washington children is a world-class education, not a burdensome government
debt. They not only need the tools to compete in a 21st century workforce,
but they also need an economic climate that will provide the same opportunities
that we've enjoyed.
Where is the 5th LD?
When redistricting is complete after this legislative session, the 5th Legislative District will include Issaquah, East Renton Highlands, Maple Valley, Black Diamond, Carnation, Fall City, Snoqualmie, and North Bend through Snoqualmie Pass.
