Hello! My name is Matthew Hawkins and I am running for the office of State Attorney General. I will be a good Attorney General because I am well versed in the ways that Law Enforcement works as I have worked for the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office as an Explorer for over 3 Years. . While I do not know everything I am willing to learn and Learn every day. I am working on getting my Juris Doctorate from EBSU and I am familiar with both the United states and the EBS Constitutions; and I have taken hours of Courtroom preparation classes and spent over hours in a courtroom during trials. I want to serve the State of Evergreen and there is not a better choice for Attorney General.

Close your eyes.  (Actually don’t, because it’s hard to read with your eyes closed).  But anyways, imagine.  Picture this image in your mind.  I discovered a ski jump in the wilderness with my friends.  For hours, I hyped myself up to try it out.  When the big moment came, I strapped on my helmet, skied fast towards the ramp. . .and then stopped right before the jump.  I went through this process many times and my repeated failure made me frustrated.  After a few pathetic tries, I finally took the risk and soared into the sky.  In the same way, I have tried many times this week for leadership positions, but I have repeatedly failed because I have not been willing to really put myself out there and take risks.  But now, by running for Attorney General,I, Jake Settle, am finally taking the risk in the hopes of soaring to achieve my dream.  I am a stand up guy who will represent your voice. I love speech and debate and am prepared to argue on behalf of the great State of Evergreen.  Finally, I urge you to vote for Jake Settle.  Don’t SETTLE for less!

Hello. My name is Jack Kelly, I am from the small island of Vashon, and I am running for the position of Attorney General.

My background is in debate and student government. I have participated in my school’s ASB for the past 6 years. Most recently I was elected ASB president on the platform of student-faculty communication. I will use this experience as Attorney General as the role aims to facilitate communication between the Judicial branch and the governor. I also have 3 years of experience competing in and judging Policy Debate. In fact, last year I did well enough in circuit tournaments that I qualified and went on to debate at state. In policy debate, teams argue back and forth on a proposed plan. This experience sets me apart from the other candidates as it so closely aligns with the role of Attorney General.

Thank you for reading this spiel of information and I would be honored if you would support my candidacy for Attorney General with your vote.
