Brad Benton has announced his intent to run as a Republican for the Washington State Senate in the 18th Legislative District.

“I am running for this position as a reliable conservative that will fight for the rights of the people in this community,’’ Benton stated in an email sent to Clark County Today.

Benton listed his legislative priorities as:

  • 1. Stop and repeal bad laws – fight tooth and nail every piece of proposed legislation that chips away at our personal freedoms
  • 2. Vehemently fight against any new taxes or tax increases
  • 3. Find a bridge solution that fixes traffic flow and congestion issues and never includes light rail or tolls

“These priorities are a starting point and the foundation of my campaign. But I am eager to hear about the other issues that matter to the people of the 18th Legislative District,’’ Benton stated.

“I was born and raised in the 18th LD (formerly 17th LD) and I have built my life here,’’ Benton wrote in his email announcement. “I was elected to leadership roles in my high school student government, on sports teams, and in the Boy Scouts of America, where I earned the rank of Eagle Scout. I have a history of being chosen by my peers to lead. I developed strong teamwork skills and work ethic playing football in high school and in college at Whitworth University, where I graduated with honors as a double major in Accounting and Political Science. My professional background is in accounting and client relationships and I am currently employed in a sales role.

“I look forward to meeting as many people of the 18th district as possible on the campaign trail and gaining the support of the people in this community. It would be an honor to earn your vote,’’ Benton stated.

    Mr. Benton, I see your sign at 179th, but I don’t see you on the PDC site.
    How are you raising money and purchasing signage before registering with the PDC?
