Ross Hunter 48th LD
"30 years ago, Washington State’s system of financing education was ruled unconstitutional for the same set of conditions that have re-emerged and again exist today. To fix it, we need a long-term strategy."
"Stand for Children is effective – not only do they care deeply about improving the lives of children, but they do exactly what it takes to get education champions elected. I look forward to working with them during the session to pass legislation and protect funding to improve the quality of public education in our state."
Ross Hunter retired from Microsoft in 2000 after 17 years of service ranging from program manager for Microsoft Access to general manager of the Microsoft Commercial Internet System.
