Marty McClendon, Well Known Real Estate Professional From Gig Harbor, Chair of Local County Party and Radio Personality has Filed to Replace Jan Angel (Gig Harbor)
Today, State Senator Jan Angel has announced her decision to retire at the end of the year and she will not seek re-election to her state senate seat that she has held since a special election in 2013. Senator Angel has a long history of serving in elected positions starting with the County Commission, then State Representative and finally State Senate. Marty McClendon, a real estate professional from Gig Harbor and chair of the local county party has filed to replace Angel for the state senate seat she is vacating.
“This is a great opportunity to continue the excellent leadership Jan Angel has provided for so many years. I plan to bring the same common-sense focus on family and community guided by conservative principals,” said McClendon. We face some challenges in our state when you see what is happening in Olympia and Seattle related to proposed tax increases, an assault on small businesses and a growing state bureaucracy with no end in site,” said McClendon. He went on to say, “I will fight for the 26th district values which means finding new solutions to growing congestion and fighting increases in tolls. I want a leaner state government, and I will be a champion for small businesses.”
“I am excited that Marty is able to step in and take over this job,” said Jan Angel. “Marty has the kind of experience needed to hit the ground running and represent this district extremely well, he has my complete support.” Angel said. Marty McClendon is a 51 year old, long time local Realtor or Real Estate Managing Broker. Marty and his wife of 18 years have three children and have lived in Gig Harbor since 2007 and in Washington State since 1972. For more information, please contact Marty at 206-818-4308.
