Home

This is my opportunity to thank the wonderful people of the state of Washington for the privilege of serving them in a long and rewarding career, the last eighteen as their United States Senator. That career has given me the chance to work to enhance the living environment of our state and the career and economic choices of its citizens.

I have, of course, paid particular attention to those parts of our state – and to those people – who have not shared in the impressive economic growth of the last two decades, and I hope that they will not be forgotten in the future.

It is a dubious honor to come in second in what must have been the closest major election in our state’s history, and the stress on my outstanding staff, my family and myself of an election night that has lasted for more than three weeks cannot be overstated.

And to the winner, Maria Cantwell, my congratulations and my hope that she will find her next six years as rewarding as I have found my last six.

Sincerely,

SLADE GORTON

Better than Disney: Cantwell’s imagination
When she was losing in 1994, Maria Cantwell ran an ad claiming her opponent would put oil rigs in Puget Sound. The ad included mock footage of rigs. Flash forward to the 2000 race: Cantwell’s behind in the polls. What does she put on TV? An ad that claims her opponent will blow up mountains in Eastern Washington. More…

The Cantwell Record


Maria Cantwell said: “Look at my record.”  So we did.
She must have thought no one would actually look into her past political record…because we here at Slade 2000 did, and now that we’re sharing that record with the voters, Cantwell is calling her own record a “lie.”  More…

Cantwell in denial about vote to cut military pay
Maria Cantwell is still trying to deny her voting record with multi-million-dollar TV ads. Her latest TV ad falsely says, “Cantwell didn’t cut military pay.”  Again, Cantwell’s TV ads say one thing, while she does another.  More…

Maria Cantwell’s Tax Hikes
Cantwell is implying the official legislative record – which details all her tax-hiking votes – is ‘meaningless.’  You know politicians are desperate when they make claims that make no sense.  More…

Maria Cantwell just hit the airwaves with another TV ad, this time trying to change her real record on government-run health care.  More…

Education


Slade’s education reform proposal – called Straight A’s– is based on the input and counsel of educators and parents across Washington. It would take federal education dollars and send them home, without all the bureaucracy and strings in the middle. It would allow educators and parents to decide what their children and schools need most, instead of having Washington, D.C. bureaucrats tell them.

Health Care


When it comes to health care, people want quality, affordability, access and choice. But many people in our state cannot buy or afford insurance — and many others are frustrated with the lack of choice in insurance coverage — which is why Slade is working to make Washington’s health care system better

Environment & Agriculture


Slade believes we should treat Washington’s natural resources as a precious gift to be passed on to our children and grandchildren. He works tirelessly to provide funding to our parks. He has written legislation to keep our rivers, lakes and ocean clean. Slade is also a great friend to the men and women who are stewards of the land – those whose livelihoods revolve around the agricultural and natural resources industries (which are the number one job-providers in Washington).

  • Agriculture
  • Dams
  • Hanford
  • Fuel-Efficient Vehicles


Social Security & Medicare


One of Slade’s top priorities has always been protecting seniors and their benefits. First and foremost in this effort has been protecting Social Security and Medicare. Slade has worked tirelessly to balance the budget and make sure the Social Security surplus isn’t spent on other Washington, DC programs.

  • Social Security

  • Medicare

  • Prescription Drugs

  • Seniors

  • Slade Honored by the Seniors’ Coalition

  • Cantwell “Proud” of Social Security Tax Increase


Taxes


Slade is a radical reformer when it comes to taxes. He believes we should repeal the current tax code and start over with one that is simpler, fairer and easier to understand. Honest taxpayers shouldn’t need a degree in accounting to do their taxes.

  • Slade: Hero of the Taxpayer

  • Double Taxation

  • Pledge to Taxpayers

  • Fiscal Responsibility

  • Cantwell’s Social Security Tax Increase

  • Maria’s Taxes
