John Swapp, candidate for state House of Representatives, 40th District, position 2, has been endorsed by state Attorney General Rob McKenna, former state Rep. Cheryl Hymes, the San Juan County Republican Party, the Skagit County Republican Party, and the Whatcom County Republican Party.
Swapp, a Republican and founder and owner of JetPoint Technologies, is one of three candidates running for position 2. The other candidates are Rep. Jeff Morris, D-Anacortes, House speaker pro tem; and Howard Pellett, Green Party. The top two candidates in the Aug. 17 primary — regardless of party affiliation — will advance to the Nov. 2 general election.
“John Swapp is the type of candidate who can bring real small-business experience to the Legislature, and who can apply proven, financial discipline to our current state government's knack of being in a financial crisis year after year," McKenna said in a press release. "We need more small-business owners and tax cutters like John and not more tax raisers in the Washington State Legislature."
