Meet Jeff Washburn

I became a candidate for State Representative of the 76th House District after receiving encouragement from my friends of both major political parties to run for this office.

I am running as an Independent candidate.

My political beliefs are centrist in nature and incorporate both Republican and Democrat philosophies, which most moderate Republicans and conservative Democrats could easily identify with.

I consider myself to be conservative, particularly where monetary policy is concerned. These conservative values have guided me during my tenure as Mayor of the City of Dresden for the past five years and as a Dresden City Alderman for two years prior to becoming Mayor. I have demanded accountability from department heads and employees of the city during my tenure as Mayor. I will do the same on the state level as your State Representative.

One of the things that my constituents in the City of Dresden say they like about me is my availability to speak with them one-on-one when they have a matter of concern. I will be more than happy to speak to the voters of the 76th District about issues at any time if given the honor of being elected as your next State Representative for the 76th District. During my tenure as Mayor, I have worked with citizens of many different political persuasions and points of view to reach common goals.

I pledge to be a State Representative that puts the interest of the 76th District and its citizens first and foremost.

I feel that as an independent member of the legislature, I would have the ability to work with members of both political parties to be a uniter, instead of a divider, on major issues before the state legislature. I will serve the citizens of the 76th District confidently and honorably if elected as your State Representative.
