“With devastating cuts to our public schools and higher education, we are making it harder
for the next generation to have the opportunities that were there when I was growing up. That
needs to change.
Our economy depends on a focus on excellence in our K-12 schools, a commitment to career
and technical training and the end of budget cuts to our four year universities,” said Santiago
Santiago is focused on renewing our commitment to opportunity. He is concerned that the
programs and educational opportunities he received will not be there for future generations.
Santiago moved here, as a child, with his family from Mexico in the early 90s. He went from
knowing no english when he entered public school to graduating with a master’s degree in
business from Western Washington University.
That’s why he is prioritizing:
•Stopping the cuts to our four year universities.
•Prioritizing our public schools
•Reducing our high school dropout rate.
•Reviewing and sunsetting tax breaks to ensure we are creating an economic climate that
