In my life, I’ve always been someone who’s had an eye for the most extinguished challenges life has to give. When I look upon the various positions the one that took my eyes was Lieutenant Governor. I understand that a position such as this requires incredible amounts of leadership, with also the understanding that partnership needs to be accomplished to achieve any goal that comes my way. But when it comes to these requirements I’ve gained an understanding of them, due to going for and achieving the position of Command Sargent Major in my JROTC class. With that position I’ve been given the command over two hundred cadets with having to provide them motivation, integrity, in addition with an ocean of other values including of course leadership. I shall do like everything in my power as lieutenant governor with a drive of following the parliamentary procedure, with some fun here and there.

Looking for unique opportunities is one of my goals while I’m still in highschool. I believe that running for Lieutenant Governor is as unique as it gets. I have extensive experience in leading and planning from Boys Scouts and Border Patrol Explorers. I have held numerous leadership positions in both organizations and plan to use these skills if elected. I believe I work well with others and truley want to listen to the voice of the people to further better the community. I thank you for reading this bio and I look forward to seeing you at elections.

Hello, my name is Cal Martin and I am running for Lt. Governor. I believe I am the best candidate for this office because of my prior experience in similar roles. In my time serving in the Washington YMCA Youth Legislature I was elected to serve in both Committee Chair and Vice Chair positions. Along with my elected positions I was also appointed to serve as the Senate Parliamentarian. Additionally I have served as Class President the previous two years. Please consider voting Cal Martin for Lt. Governor. He’s the best choice for you!
