Russell sets the trend
Thanks to Pro-tem Mayor Jon Russell, Washougal has set the trend for the State of Washington on illegal immigration.
Candidate Russell is by far the most qualified candidate for our 18th District. His accomplishments have proved that we can count on him to get the job done to our satisfaction in Olympia. No other candidate has been more active in standing up for traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Jon was the only candidate that showed up to assist in our rallies on R-71 vote no on SB 5688. In Clark County, voters agreed with us by more than 56 percent.
Russell has also been the only candidate working with Washington Citizens for Responsible Government to pass E-Verify in Clark and Cowlitz counties, and other cities and towns.
E-Verify is used by 118 businesses in Vancouver, including Jack in the Box fast food chain of restaurants. Clark County, Lewis County, Pierce County, Lakewood, Washougal and Camas have all passed E-Verify ordinances. Other cities and towns are contemplating using E-Verify.
E-Verify is run by our Homeland Security and Social Security departments and provides and maintains a legal work force for all private businesses and government jobs. American jobs for American citizens.
